Research Systems


Research Management Suite

eBridge is maintained and managed by Research Systems within the Office of Research at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Since its launch in 2005, eBridge has seen many changes and thousands of improvements. Today, eBridge is a suite of services that allow researchers, partners, and affiliated research sites to create, submit, track, report and archive research applications.

Institutional, federal, state, and local regulatory requirements are managed by Research Systems in partnership with the (GCO) Grants and Contracts Office, Institutional Review Board(s) (IRB), the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), and the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
