Any human subject research project that is currently active (Exempt, Minimal Risk, Greater than Minimal Risk) at UIUC will be required to be submitted as a new project in IRBOnline.
The new project will receive a new IRB number once it has been submitted in IRBOnline. Once your "new" project has been approved, your old project will be closed by OPRS. Your research will then continue under the new IRB number and application.
As long as your original application is not expired there is no need to stop conducting any research activities during the submission and review of the electronic submission.
OVCRI has partnered with IHSI to offer assistance to researchers who have questions about how to complete the new application. Questions about existing projects and how to input information from an existing study should be directed to the IHSI-IRBOnline Transition Coordinator at email@example.com.
