VA Innovation and Research Review System (VAIRRS)

The VAAAHS Research Service uses the VA Innovation and Regulatory Review System (VAIRRS), commercially known as IRBNet, for all aspects of regulatory management, including oversight by R&D, IRB, PO/ISSO, Safety, and IACUC committees. All submissions, including new, continuing review, amendments, staff changes and closures, should be made in VAIRRS.

 In order to help investigators and study team navigate VAIRRS/IRBNet, the Research Service is hosting a virtual IRBNet Power Hour every 3rd Wednesday 1pm - 2pm.

At the beginning of the meeting we will touch on a specific topic and then open it up for Q&A.

Contact Lizzy Koester ( for a link to the meeting.
