eRAM: PI & Lab Personnel Home Workspace


The Principal Investigator (PI) and Lab Personnel home workspace is the launch page for eResearch eRAM. From the home workspace you can:

  • View the applications and amendments which require action from you.
  • Access and track the progress of all applications, protocols and amendments to which you are attached. This includes approved and expired applications and protocols.
  • Access applications, protocols and amendments in order to view related documents. The system provides document storage and access for those project team members and unit administrators who have some relationship to the project.

The IACUC Inbox page is used as the example of a Home Workspace in this document. While many of the features described on this page are applicable to all pages in the workspace, some available field names may differ.
