eBridge Classroom Training for Animal Submissions
eBridge, our web-based system for research submissions, is accessible anywhere and at any time. Research Education offers training sessions, both in the classroom and online, for navigating eBridge, with a focus on animal use submissions. They also offer several useful resources for researchers creating and amending submissions within eBridge.
Introductory eBridge training sessions are offered for Principal Investigators (PI) and Research Staff involved in animal research. The classes are held monthly in an instructional computer lab to allow a hands-on learning experience. The 1½ hour session focuses on how to create and edit an Animal Use Application (AUA), Animal Amendment (AA), Annual Renewal (AR) and 3 Year de novo Renewal AUA. Visit eBridge Training - Animal Submissions for full details.
Please Note: The Online Basic Navigation is a prerequisite for the in-class session.
