The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is pleased to announce several upcoming IRBNet workshops. During these workshops, the use of IRBNet will be thoroughly demonstrated. Each workshop will be followed by an open lab period, allowing investigators to receive assistance with the upload of documents into the online system.
If you plan to stay for the open lab, please bring your electronic documents on a flash drive.
Each presentation will take less than 1/2 hour, followed by each open lab period.
Please contact Ms. Sarah Cruz at 570-348-6211 (x. 2233) or email@example.com, and include your name, telephone number, email address and the date/time you plan to attend. As space is limited, you must register.
