Huron IRB Submission System

Important update on the progress of implementing the Huron IRB submission system.

Last updated: July 20, 2023

There has been much progress on the transition from iRIS to Huron, but like many large and complex transitions, unexpected delays can and do occur. We are sorry to report that the Huron IRB submission system will not go-live on Monday, July 24th.  

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. The technical teams are working hard to ensure the system is solid before we “go live”. At this point, we do not have an updated timeline, but expect to set a new “go live” date in the Fall-Spring. We will continue to keep you updated as information becomes available. 

In the interim, the black-out has been lifted and the IRB office has re-opened iRIS for all submission types (to access iRIS click here).

  • If you have a fully developed written protocol prepared in anticipation of Huron it can be attached to the iRIS application for new initial studies. It will be necessary to only complete the first 7 items in iRIS if you are attaching a fully developed protocol.
  • If you do not have a fully developed written protocol, then you can complete the iRIS application as usual.

Thank you for your patience and for the work you have done preparing for this transition. A revised timeline will be posted as soon as new dates can be determined.
