We are pleased to announce that the new TOPAZ Elements Protocol Submission System is tentatively scheduled to be released to the FIU research community on April 26th.


The new system will be accessible from any modern browser, whether you are using a PC or Mac (e.g., Edge, Firefox, Chrome, or Safari).


Considerable preparation will be required to migrate the current data to the new TOPAZ Elements system.  In order to facilitate the migration, the current TOPAZ system will be taken offline on April 9th.


Therefore, the TOPAZ system will be inaccessible from April 9th – April 25th. Please take this time frame into consideration when planning your upcoming IRB, IACUC or IBC protocol submissions.


If you have any questions, please contact Chris Grayson at 305-348-8379 or
