USF Research & Innovation is pleased to announce that USF faculty and staff will soon be able to submit their Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) protocols electronically. BiosafetyNet, USF’s implementation of Huron Consulting Group’s Click™ Safety product, will enable the transition from paper-based submissions to a more streamlined electronic IBC submission process.
BiosafetyNet will allow faculty and staff to submit new protocols, protocol change requests, study team updates, annual reviews and protocol renewals, all online.
Members of USF Research Integrity & Compliance and Research Technologies are currently in the development phase of this initiative. Several research faculty and staff have also joined the effort as Project Champions to provide feedback and input.
BiosafetyNet’s pilot phase will begin late summer 2017, followed by a full transition to electronic submissions for all new IBC studies.
