An upcoming IRB system transition may impact human subjects researchers on both the KU Lawrence and KU Medical Center campuses.

The Human Research Protection Program on the KUMC campus is moving to a new IRB system of record, myIRB, on Jan. 26. Both myIRB and the existing Lawrence campus system, eCompliance, will be offline during the Jan. 26-30 conversion period.

Once the transition is complete, IRB records of KUMC and KU Lawrence will no longer be stored in the same electronic system. In addition, eCompliance, the system that will continued to be used at KU Lawrence, will no longer accept KUMC online credentials for access to study records.

For KUMC researchers who submit to KU Lawrence HRPP
After Jan. 26, KUMC researchers will no longer be able to access studies that have been approved through the KU Lawrence HRPP unless they log in with a KU Lawrence online ID. KUMC researchers with active studies approved through the KU Lawrence HRPP may apply for KU Lawrence affiliate status to obtain a KU Lawrence online ID for the purpose of accessing their KU Lawrence HRPP studies. Please contact if you have questions. 

For KU Lawrence researchers who submit to KUMC HRPP
The new KUMC system, myIRB, will not automatically accept KU Lawrence online IDs. If you have studies approved through KUMC, submitted with your KU Lawrence online ID, please contact the KUMC IRB at for assistance gaining access to the new myIRB system.
