New application, submission process for research involving animals

Submitted by Erin Pennington

Beginning Tuesday, July 13, the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee will be updating the application and submission process for research involving the use of animals to IRBManager, an online software solution.
IRBManager 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 using the old PDF file via email to comply@k-state.edu. This grace period will end on Aug. 13. 
IRBManager can be accessed on the University Research Compliance Office website. Basic instructions and a detailed user guide to walk investigators through the features of the application are included on the site.
Open forums and training sessions will be offered in July via Zoom: 
  • 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 14.
  • 2 p.m. Thursday, July 15.
  • 3 p.m. Monday, July 19.
  • 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 20. 
Please register to attend. Zoom details will be sent to registrants the day before the session.
The Institutional Biosafety Committee will also be transitioning to IRBManager in the next month. Please watch the University Research Compliance Office website and K-State today for updates.
