I-Manager is a fully web-based system allowing users with an internet browser to securely login and submit IRB submissions; send and receive automatic notices; view the status of active, closed, or recent submissions; and maintain the entire IRB file in one central place.

Students or someone other than the Principal Investigator can complete and submit forms. However, the PI must log in, review the submission, and press the final submit button before the study is routed to the IRB for review.
