Dear Research Community,

The iRIS system will be taken offline this Sunday the 19th for an upgrade to the next version of iRIS. Please log off prior to 7am PST to avoid losing work.

The maintenance window is scheduled from 7am – 2pm. The upgrade could be completed earlier. We’ll send a message out once the system is back online.

Please note that there will be fewer IRB meetings in December and January. If your study is set to expire in December or January, please submit your continuing review well in advance. Meeting dates can be found at the following link: http://irb.ucsf.edu/irb-rosters-meeting-dates

This webinar on Oct. 18 is designed for anyone interested in learning more about the implementation of the NIH Single IRB policy.
Need to revise the Key Study Personnel sections of your IRB application? The IRB has created a new “Personnel Changes” submission form and it is now available in iRIS.
The HRPP office now has a variety of job opportunities. Help us improve patients’ access to cutting edge research studies by working closely with physicians, scientists and study coordinators to facilitate the review and approval of human research applications.
Potential breaches of privacy or confidentiality of study participants’ Protected Health Information (PHI) are considered “major (reportable) incidents” that must be reported to the HRPP/IRB. PIs must submit a Protocol Violation/Incident Report Form in iRIS within 48 hours of their first awareness of a violation or incident involving a breach of privacy or confidentiality involving PHI.
Effective April 3, 2017, Michael C. Roach, MHSA, JD, CIP, CHRC joined UCSF as the Interim Director of the HRPP. Michael will assume the responsibilities formerly held by Dr. Chris Ryan, who retired from UCSF on March 31, 2017.
Please log out of the system prior to 7pm to avoid losing any work.
