The Rush Research Portal (RRP) is a way to manage all aspects of the research submission and management process. All new studies must be submitted electronically through the RRP.
One of the many benefits of the RRP is it's accessibility via the Internet, allowing a streamlined approach to the submission, review and approval of research projects, even if the necessary people are not physically here at Rush. The system notifies Research Admininstrators, PIs, study staff and department approvers as the project advances through the system. This allows complete transparency and oversight of the review process.
Components to the RRP are Coverage Analysis, Grants, Contracts and the IRB. This allows an even more efficient process linking all study aspects in a trials management system. There is a module called "Master Project" that prepopulates the information into all the other modules. This module is the method to access all other modules throughout the life of the study.
To obtain a login ID for the RRP, all users are required to attend training. Training is available every Friday in the lower level of the Annex building at 10 a.m.
Additional group training can be accommodated for those who cannot attend one of the Friday sessions. Contact Antonio DeMarco at (312) 942-5097 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.
Additionally, all users are required to complete their mandatory training prior to having their study reviewed by the IRB. The mandatory training is accessible through www.citiprogram.org. If you have any questions, or would like to check on the status of your training, please contact Antonio DeMarco at (312) 942-5097 or email@example.com.
