New application, submission process for research involving biological agents

Submitted by Erin Pennington

Beginning Monday, July 26, the Institutional Biosafety Committee will update the application and submission process for research involving the use of biological agents 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. 30.  

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: 

  • 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 27.
  • 9 a.m. Thursday, July 29.
  • 10 a.m. Friday, July 30.

Please register to attend. Zoom details will be sent to registrants the day before the session.
