SUBJECT:  Database

The HRAC support staff and committee members have access to the Automated Research Administration (ARIA) database that contains information on all protocols, including the protocol number, protocol title, Principal Investigator, Sub-investigators, HRAC approval date, and protocol expiration date.  The HRAC Database is a key element in coordinating human subjects research.  The HRAC Manager relies on this database to generate letters and reports, and to ensure that the PI is conducting an approved study, and using an updated, appropriate and approved consent form.  One hard copy will be printed from ARIA and filed.
