OVPRI Human Subject Research Protection Blog

The VCU Human Research Protection Program is dedicated to facilitating ethically and scientifically sound research through robust review of research projects and through effective education and outreach to the VCU research community.

As a reminder, RAMS-IRB will be undergoing an update on Wednesday, September 15th, and will be inaccessible between 6am and 3pm EST.

RAMS-IRB may come back online prior to 3pm if the update finishes earlier. The HRPP will notify the research community should RAMS-IRB come back online earlier than anticipated.

The RAMS-IRB update will have a significant impact on the look, feel, and functioning of reviewer notes, as well as the navigation of the smartform. The VCU HRPP will be releasing guidance on Wednesday, September 15th to the research community on the changes and their impact on the IRB review process.

The VCU research community is encouraged to monitor the HRPP Blog and/or sign up for the HRPP listserv (see bottom of page), to receive these important updates and guidance materials.
