What can I do before I arrive at MCW?


There are actions an investigator can take prior to arriving at the Medical College of Wisconsin.  The procedures below summarize  how to transfer funds and/or research material from your current institution to the Medical College of Wisconsin.  In addition, once you have an MCW employee ID, you can proceed to register with eBridge.

 

Can I register with eBridge prior to arrival?


Once an employee identification number has been received from Human Resources, new investigators can register with eBridge, the College’s web-based software which allows researchers to submit, track, report, and archive research activities involving animal research, human subject research and funding proposals.  For further detail, visit the eBridge Support Web page About eBridge.

 

How do I transfer funds?


Investigator must obtain a completed Relinquishment Statement from former institution allowing for funds to be released to MCW.  Contact the Office of Grants & Contracts for details.

 

How do I transfer research material?


Human Subject Data/Specimens

If an investigator wishes to transfer clinical or research records, specimens, samples or intellectual property, a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is needed.  Please contact the Office of Grants & Contracts (phone 414-955-4844) for information on obtaining an MTA.

   

Animal Data/Specimens

If an investigator wishes to transfer research records, specimens, samples or intellectual property, a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is needed.  Please contact the Office of Grants & Contracts (phone 414-955-4844) for information on obtaining an MTA.

 

Live Animals

  • Before arranging to have animals shipped to the Medical College of Wisconsin, an Animal Use Application (AUA) should be initiated. This will require registration with eBridge:

    If you would like assistance completing the online registration form or have questions about how to navigate eBridge, please email the eBridge Help Desk or phone 414-955-8476.  Specific questions about the animal research aspect can be directed to IACUCAdmin@mcw.edu

  • Contact the Biomedical Resource Center (BRC) regarding Animal Shipment Guidelines.  You will need to obtain and complete an Animal Shipment Request Form.  For investigators who have access to the MCW intranet site InfoScope, this form is available on the BRC web site: search for keywords “animal import” and select the link at the top.

  • All work with hazardous agents in the vivarium must be approved prior to onset of research by the appropriate safety committee (IBC, Hazardous Chemicals, Radiation Safety). The PI must review the hazardous nature of the animals with the animal husbandry staff via an Hazardous Agent Information Sheet (HAIS) during a scheduled meeting.  This and other animal research related forms are available through MCW's intranet site, InfoScope by searching for keywords “brc forms.”  Contact the BRC for more information.
