The Ideate Animal Studies (IACUC) application provides a comprehensive electronic management system for the development, submission, review, and management of research protocols involving animals. It facilitates close collaboration of researchers, department administrators, associated research personnel, department heads, IACUC (Animal Studies) staff, IACUC (Animal Studies) committee members, and any other internal/external reviewers. Logic-driven application forms guide investigators through applicable requirements based on the nature of their Study. The system automates task assignments and distribution of IACUC (Animal Studies) communications. The application provides Office Management support for one or more Committees, including: Committee membership and meeting schedules, automatic generation of Agendas and Minutes, and reporting capabilities.
