iRIS will be unavailable Monday and Tuesday (June 28th and 29th) for system updates and upgrades. The IRB/HRPP office will not be able to receive, process, or review submissions during this time.  As part of the upgrade, you will likely notice changes to the overall look of the iRIS home screen and the processes for document uploads and addressing reviewer stipulations. The changes should assist with the overall functionality of the system and make the steps in those processes easier to complete. 

The IRB/HRPP office will be available for training on the changes, and guidance will be posted to the IRB website to help navigate any differences. Please let us know if you have any questions or if you would like to set up a training session!
