Protocol Submission


IBC submissions are done through eProtocol. Access to eProtocol IBC is restricted to current faculty, staff, and students. A University of Texas Electronic ID (UT EID) is required to log on to eProtocol IBC. If you have a UT EID and are unable to log on to eProtocol IBC, your sponsoring Principal Investigator must complete the eProtocol IBC Access Form, available on the eProtocol IBC Information Center page of the IBC website.


The IACUC will review work involving animals and must be completed prior to ordering any animals. eProtocol IACUC allows for the online submission, review, routing and tracking of animal utilization proposals (AUP or protocol) and Animal Utilization Registration Forms (AURFs). Access to eProtocol IACUC (and the AALAS Learning Library training modules) is restricted to current faculty, staff and students. If you do not fall under one of these groups, then you will need to email for access to eProtocol.


IRB review is needed prior to beginning work that utilizes human subjects. IRBaccess is the human subjects research database. This system allows users to manage their research studies. It interfaces with UTDIRECT allowing for smooth navigation. Use IRBaccess to apply online or to update your compliance training. The IRBaccess Main Page is located at:
