ESTR will be upgraded in mid-October. Changes are a part of the University’s efforts to align the current version of ESTR with the Click® IRB product. Through this initiative, ESTR will remain customized to Harvard’s needs and will provide the benefit of sustainable long-term and robust support. The upgrade will also ensure that the IRB remains compliant with our accreditors and that all ESTR users benefit from a vendor-supported and hosted system. The upgrade will affect the entire, University-wide ESTR system. Read more about ESTR Upgrades Coming Soon!
