Emory University Goes Live on Huron IACUC 8.1
In just five months, Emory University deployed Huron IACUC to streamline operations and better manage its protocols.
Emory found itself searching for an easy-to-use, compliant, fully-functional but configurable Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) system that could be rapidly deployed to its user community in early 2017. The institution selected Huron IACUC as its partner for protocol management and initiated implementation in August 2017.
“Overall the system has performed exceptionally well, and the Huron support team has been outstanding. We had a very aggressive timeline for implementation and they worked with us every step of the way” – David Martin, PHD, Emory IACUC Director
Emory was motivated to adjust its business practices to maximize the features of the solution. By leveraging Huron IACUC’s active user group, which facilitates collaboration and detailed knowledge-sharing sessions, Emory implemented Huron IACUC in late 2017 and initiated the migration of protocols from its legacy system. Emory is projected to be completely transitioned from its legacy systems by summer 2018.
Individuals from Emory’s IACUC members, staff, business partners and research teams began leveraging the system for new protocol submissions, amendments and renewals at the start of the year. In March, the system will be used campus-wide and Emory will extend the use of the system for managing concerns, inspections, meetings and reporting. In addition, the university will use the pre-loaded standard library with 471 substances and 350 procedures to facilitate the overall process. Based on preliminary metrics, the software streamlines the time it takes researchers to write protocols by up to 30 percent.
