Resources for
eBridge IBC Applications Module

The eBridge IBC SmartForm and workflow went live on December 21, 2013.  Just like the eBridge IACUC process, the Institutional Biosafety Committee Application/Amendment preparation and submission, and IBC review processes will reside in eBridge. The Investigator will receive email notifications throughout the application workflow and all activities will be tracked in the history log.

The Office of Research, Research Systems Training, offers individualized eBridge training for those who use the IBC Application. Please complete the Registration form to request a time that accommodates your schedule. For more information, please contact


The eBridge IT Team converted basic information from currently Approved paper applications, such as IBC Application ID, title, PI name, approval date, etc. into eBridge. The PI and Study Team will monitor their Approved application from this basic shell in eBridge. At the time of the first Amendment or 3 Yr. Renewal, whichever comes first, the PI and Study Team will use the eBridge Application shell to input the remaining data from the paper Application. The completed eBridge Amendment or 3 Yr. Renewal is submitted to the IBC for review.

Below is a chart with the plan for converting existing IBC Applications/Amendments to eBridge. We suggest Principal Investigators and their study team review this chart in preparation for moving their IBC into eBridge.
