iMedRIS IBC Module

What is iMedRIS?

iMedRIS, short for Integrated Medical Research Information System, is a web-based system that enables online application submission, real-time submission tracking, review, post-approval compliance activities, and data management. It is used to process all of the research applications that are submitted to various committees like the Instutional Review Board (IRB) and the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) among others. The system also functions as a document repository, providing investigators with easy access to submission records and study documents.

Investigators can use the system anywhere they have Internet access, helping to connect faculty, researchers, students and partners around the world in one portal. iMedRIS will help UTK promote a paperless office and supports a greener and cleaner environment.
