What is iMedRIS?
iMedRIS, short for Integrated Medical Research Information System, is a web-based system that enables online application submission, real-time submission tracking, review, post-approval compliance activities, and data management. It is used to process all of the research applications that are submitted to the Institutional Review Board (IRB). In the near future iMedRIS modules will be launched at UTK for the Biosafety Program and the Radiation Safety Department. The system also functions as a document repository, providing investigators with easy access to submission records and study documents.
Investigators can use the system anywhere they have Internet access, helping to connect faculty, researchers, students and partners around the world in one portal. iMedRIS will help UTK promote a paperless office and supports a greener and cleaner environment.
The University of Tennessee, Knoxville is still developing training and resources specific to our audience’s needs. In the meantime, you may reference the UT Health Science Center documents on the ORE iMedRIS Resources page for
- Training materials
- Answers to frequently asked questions (Coming soon)
- Researcher tools (Coming soon)
You can create an iMedRIS account with your UT Net-ID and password now. Beginning September 1, researchers who need to submit new applications, amendments, or renewals will find their information located within the system.
