iRIMS-Institutional Review Board (IRB)

iRIMS-IRB is the first module to be implemented in NUS’ Integrated Research Information Management Suite (iRIMS). This will replace the existing, manual (paper-based and email) ethics submissions to the NUS Institutional Review Board (NUS-IRB).

The intuitive, easy-to-navigate interface will guide users through the research protocol completion, submission, IRB review, approval, modifications, incident reports and closure using industry-defined best practices that streamline processes, mitigate risk and ensure compliance to NUS and local regulatory requirements.
