CATS-IRB goes live for HHD and COM December 9.
IRB submissions will change from PRAMS to CATS (Centralized Application Tracking System) on December 9 for the College of Health and Human Development (Including the College of Nursing) and the College of Medicine. All other colleges and campuses will change to CATS-IRB in March 2014. CATS-IRB is the first phase of the CATS project which is transforming processes and systems for human subject (IRB), animal subject (IACUC), biohazardous material (IBC), and radioactive isotope (UIC) research submissions.
Hands-on workshops to help researchers learn the new IRB submission process using CATS (Centralized Application Tracking System) have been scheduled for University Park and Hershey researchers.
