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.


The Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews research involving human participants to ensure that the rights and welfare of human participants are protected. The IRB has the authority to approve, require modifications, disapprove, suspend, terminate and observe the consenting process for research that falls within its scope of review, as specified by federal regulations and institutional policy.
