Former eIRB System Archive

Our “old” eIRB system ( a.k.a. “Rx”), which we transitioned out of in early 2020, must be decommissioned soon for technical reasons. We are working with the system vendor and Emory IT to place IRB records in an accessible archive, for studies that are still within their record retention period. Please stay tuned for updates on how the archive will work and when the old system will go offline.

Website Hyperlink Issues

Please note we are experiencing hyperlink issues in many of our documents. We are working on this, and this will be fixed over time. If you are not able to access information that you need, please alert the IRB analyst on the study or contact the IRB email inbox.
