Members of the MIT Research Community:
Earlier this year we implemented COUHES Connect as the Institute online platform to electronically manage human subjects’ research protocols. The COUHES office has been using the new tool for several months and we are now piloting with a few departments. During the pilot the departmental users will access COUHES Connect to create and manage their protocols electronically.
Starting in 2020 we will begin the implementation of COUHES Connect across all MIT departments.
We wanted to let you know that on Monday December 23, we will turn on COUHES Connect notifications. You will start receiving emails from COUHES Connect related to the status and approval of your protocols, as well as reminders when it is time to renew your protocols.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns; we will continue to provide regular updates on the implementation.
