ORSP and the ASU research community have long recognized the need to reduce manual and paper-based procedures, streamline protocol submission and review processes and leverage today’s best technologies throughout the research lifecycle. As an important step toward these objectives, ORSP’s adoption of IRBNet now brings the ASU community a robust set of electronic tools supporting the management, submission, review and oversight of our research protocols.
