The next ERA Virtual Office Hours will be this coming Wednesday (2/9) from 11am-12pm.
Starting this session, we will be providing a demo on how Department Chairs can access, review and sign off on protocol applications – a requirement before final IRB approval can be released which will resume March 1, 2022.
Please see the attached announcement from the Human Research Protections office for further details.

The ERA Team
The ERA Team is happy to announce the return of weekly Virtual Office Hours, scheduled for Wednesdays, from 11am-12pm starting February 2nd. The purpose of these informal sessions is for you to bring questions you may have regarding any system that you work in on a daily basis as it relates to your work in Research Administration. Some examples may include the Kuali Research Suite (Proposal Development, Protocols, etc.), Cayuse Proposals, NIH eRA Commons, or NSF’s Research.gov. Any system that you’re using to administer research at UCI can be covered! And if we’re not able to answer your question, we’ll point you in the right direction so that you can find the solution.
Occasionally, we may provide a session on a specific topic or system that could be informational or be a refresher for you. We will provide adequate notice ahead of time for those sessions so that you can plan accordingly. Along the same lines, we would appreciate your feedback in terms of what you would like covered so that we can plan a session to fit your needs.
Please send your topic ideas to the ERA Team via this Google survey: https://forms.gle/i1SKKGRA2bSFhuWw6. This survey will remain open so any time you think of something you want covered, feel free to send it to us.
Here is the Zoom link for the Office Hours: https://uci.zoom.us/my/jonlew. This will also be provided in the email reminders we’ll send out prior to the sessions.
Please let the ERA Team know if you have any questions. Lastly, if Wednesdays from 11am-12pm doesn’t work for you, please let us know and we can schedule a separate time as needed.
