In August, the ORIC website underwent updates, completely re-branding the face of our web portal. You may notice that some previously used bookmarks or links may no longer work. Please navigate through our website and update any bookmarks accordingly.
Please be aware that the August 26, 2015 IRB meeting has been moved to August 19, 2015 due to a guest speaker for the IRB and clinical research community on that day. This results that the deadline for submission of full board protocols for that meeting has been moved to August 12, 2015. Be sure to consider this when submitting your protocols.
If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Research Integrity and Compliance at (304) 293-7073.
