eProtocol is a web-based product comprising a fully integrated group of applications to manage IACUC protocol, staff, and animal census functions. With eProtocol, users have access to their personal eProtocol home page providing them with a single point of access to their protocols and other essential Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) approval information.
Two types of eProtocol users
Access to data in the system is controlled in eProtocol by user roles. Administrative Users can retrieve all types of data, whereas Investigator Users can access only their own information.
Administrative Users of eProtocol include the IACUC administrator, IACUC committee members, designated animal care technicians, and census/billing coordinators. Depending on the rights assigned to each individual, Administrative Users can access any data in the system (most often with read-only privileges).
Investigator Users include Principal Investigators (PIs) and their staff. Investigator Users can access only those protocols and requisitions belonging to the group owner (the PI) of the group to which they belong.
Before you can order, obtain, or otherwise begin work with vertebrate animals for research and teaching activity at the University you must first receive approval from the IACUC. An approval letter and/or email is sent to you once IACUC approval has been granted so that you will know when this step has been completed. IACUC protocol forms are online in eProtocol. Please contact IACUC staff for information and technical assistance regarding logging into this system and completing your protocols. Any proposed changes to your protocols (i.e., amendments) must also be approved before you implement the requested changes. The forms for amending existing protocols as well as for providing the required annual update information are also available in eProtocol.
