Human Studies IRB / Ethics

Get on with the Research

Researchers, IRB/Ethics Administrators, and research admins are facing mounting compliance pressures. Manual and paper-based methodologies and ill-suited applications are simply too cumbersome, time consuming, and prone to error.

InfoEd Human Studies / IRB & Ethics is the one solution that allows all stakeholders access to the complete protocol and all reviews, while providing a perfectly suited and individualized perspective for each stake-holder. Nothing slips and nothing falls-through, because everyone is operating on the same page.
