University Research Compliance Office to launch IRBManager

Submitted by Erin Pennington

Beginning Jan. 11, the University Research Compliance Office, or URCO, will begin utilizing IRBManager for the application and submission process for research involving human subjects.

IRBManager is a software system that allows K-State's forms and workflow to be incorporated with virtually no change. This means researchers will be familiar with the applications, approval letter, continuing review forms and basic workflow of the approval process.

There will be a 30-day grace period for submitting applications on the old PDF file via email to comply@k-state.edu. This grace period will end on Feb. 5.

IRBManager can be accessed on the URCO website. Basic instructions, as well as a detailed user guide are also included on the website. This guide will walk investigators through all of the features of the application.

Open forums/training sessions will be offered in January via Zoom. Please register to attend. Zoom details will be sent to registrants the day before the session.

  • 9 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12.
  • 2 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14.
  • 2 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 19.
  • 3 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 20.
  • 9 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 21.

In the coming months, URCO also will be transitioning the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, or IACUC, and Institutional Biosafety Committee, IBC, to this new online system. Please watch the URCO website and Research Weekly for updates.

If you have any questions, please email comply@k-state.edu.
