eBridge - Human Submissions
The eBridge Human Submissions module enables the MCW/FH Institutional Review Board (IRB) to capture the entire IRB regulatory process, monitor the flow of information and the associated activities and tasks for all users, delivering a complete electronic document based solution.
All new protocols, amendments, continuing review reports, and reportable events must be entered into eBridge. This includes proposals that investigators believe may be non-human subject research or exempt from IRB review. Exceptions are: protocols that remain in paper with IRB permission, NCI CIRB submissions, HUD submissions, and requests for emergency use.
For those unfamiliar with eBridge, accessing the eBridge Support Web site is recommended to help you become more familiar with the system. The SmartForms (forms that will be completed in eBridge) will help you to provide the IRB with information it needs to review your submission.
eBridge - Animal Submissions
The eBridge Animal Studies module enables researchers to submit, track, report and archive research activities. eBridge also allows MCW to effectively manage federal and local regulatory requirements. The electronic interface optimizes the review process for researchers by tracking and communicating submission status and required actions, and will automatically notify investigators of renewal due dates.
eBridge allows the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) to monitor the flow of information and activities associated with animal research at MCW.
eBridge - Funding Proposals

Web-based accessibility to Funding Proposal information anytime, anywhere
