eIRB Update and Downtime
Starting at 3 PM on Friday, Nov. 6, eIRB will go offline for a major update. The system is expected to return online on the morning of Saturday, Nov. 7.
The update will result in a slightly different login process and, more significantly, an integration of eIRB accounts with the Emory University and Healthcare systems. New users will no longer have to submit a request to create an eIRB account. Instead, logging into eIRB with University or Healthcare credentials will automatically create an eIRB account.
Questions about this update may be sent to the IRB at our email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
IRB Holiday Meeting Schedule
Some IRB meetings will be re-schedule around the holidays in November and December. Study teams with submissions that may require full board review should take note of the compressed meeting schedule in order to avoid delays in review.
