Institutional Review Board (IRB)


Streamlyne Logo


STREAMLYNE is an efficient online system for faster review and online approval. The primary objective of the implementation of Streamlyne at PHSU is to remove the paper processing related to Research Administration Compliance. We kindly recommend reading the guidelines carefully, answer all of the IRB questions directly related to the protocol needs and save your responses frequently. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Research Development from Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at 787-840-2575 ext.4754.

Be aware of buttons and features used to collect/incorporate data in Streamlyne, such as the looking glass tool and particularly the “Add” button where available. These are often overlooked and can sometimes even be hidden off the side of the screen depending on your screen’s zoom. For example, this error commonly occurs in the “Participant Types” section when adding the type and number of participants.
