Research and Informatics Support
In addition to student learning, Academic Computing has enhanced the connections between investigators, the Office of Research, and various review boards in clinical trials and research programs with a web-based human studies protocol submission system called eIRB and a web-based animal studies protocol submission system called eIACUC.
In 2006 , Academic Computing, the Coy C. Carpenter Library, and the Office of Biomedical Communications (now Creative Communications) began the process of merging strategies to take advantage of economies of scale and at the same time to create an enhanced informatics model for the School of Medicine.
