The Office for the Protection of Research Subjects (OPRS) is pleased to inform the campus that Electronic Submission of research protocols for UIC IRB review will soon be a reality. The OVCR IT Team, as part of the Start myResearch project, has been working on a system enabling Investigators to finally go paperless. OPRS Live will soon be available to the campus. OPRS will provide additional information on the exact roll out dates when they become available.
