eProtocol IACUC Access Form

Access to eProtocol IACUC (and the AALAS Learning Library training modules) is restricted to current faculty, staff, and students. If you have a UT EID and are unable to log on to eProtocol IACUC, please email your name, EID, PI's name, and expected access termination date to iacuc@austin.utexas.edu. The eProtocol IACUC Access Form is no longer being used in order to streamline the process.
