eIACUC

Following provide directions for accessing the eIACUC system for creating research protocols.

Newly hired Principal Investigators (PIs) can be provided the ability to access the eIACUC system to begin creating their research protocols. The IACUC requires that, as long as the PI has undergone the Human Resources (HR) and Employee Health Service (EHS) vetting processes, obtained a Mount Sinai Health System life number and email, a ticket can be submitted to https://osticket.mssm.edu. Research Administration IT will then assign them the study staff role.  As a pre-requisite, all PIs and research personnel must take the required CITI Program training (see sections "Mandatory Institutional and IACUC Training Requirements" and "Update User Profiles" below).

Within the eIACUC protocol workspace, the PI can assign a “Proxy” (delegate) to work on a protocol on their behalf. The Proxy has create, edit, view and submit authority. Proxy roles are protocol specific and must be assigned before a new iteration of a protocol is created.

Effective August 1, 2019, all Principal Investigators and their research personnel must take the following courses in CITI Program. Failure to show completion will result in delay of review of the protocol:
Principal Investigators - Rigor and Reproducibility and Ethical Behavior in Biomedical Research
Principal Investigators and their research personnel - Species Specific Module
