Beginning May 1, all new study submissions to Advarra’s IRB will be made through the Advarra Center for IRB Intelligence (CIRBI) Platform. Users will no longer able to submit new study submissions using the legacy Schulman eTools system.

Advarra is also in the process of migrating ongoing studies from the legacy Schulman eTools system to the Advarra CIRBI Platform. For more information on the migration process, please review this news item.

The legacy eTools system will remain accessible for studies that have not yet migrated to the Advarra CIRBI Platform. Submissions for ongoing review activities (e.g., study amendments, continuing review reports, etc.) may still be submitted through eTools until these studies have been migrated to CIRBI or have closed. The legacy Schulman WebPortal and SiteAccess systems will also remain accessible through the applicable retention period for study documentation so that clients may download these materials.

Advarra will provide clients with advance notification and guidance regarding the eventual discontinuation of the legacy eTools system.

Advarra is currently working directly with individual clients regarding the CIRBI migration schedule for open studies. If you have questions regarding your study’s migration, please contact Business Development.
