IRB Electronic Submission, Tracking & Reporting (ESTR) system is now live !!!
As of November 15, 2012 all submissions including initial and continuing reviews, modification requests, Not Human Subjects requests, RNIs, etc., will go through ESTR. The basic information (e.g. protocol number, PI, IRB approval expiration date) for all existing protocols will be migrated to the new system. Investigators will be required to upload the electronic documents, such as protocol, consent form, etc. at the time of their next submission, e.g. continuing review.
Please click the following url to log into ESTR: http://irb.harvard.edu. You will need to provide your HUID and password to log into the system. If you have forgotten your HUID PIN/Password, please click here to reset it or request a new PIN. If you do not have an HUID, one can be requested for you by an HSPH Sponsor (i.e. HSPH affiliate/primary contact or Principal Investigator) by completing the ID Request Form. Please click here for additional information.
