Welcome to the electronic portion of UAB's Integrated Research Administration Portal (IRAP). The underlying software consists of a suite of modules developed by InfoEd Global Inc. When fully implemented these modules will support electronic submission of funding applications and compliance forms and will seamlessly connect the operations of the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), Institutional Review Board for Human Use (IRB), Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC), Chemical Safety Committee, Radiation Safety Committee, Conflict of Interest Review Board, and UAB Research Foundation. Other features of the system provide access to potential collaborators and automated notification of funding opportunities meeting criteria users set.
