Click Compliance System

As many research projects require complex regulatory oversight, the VP of Research and Innovation provides for a central system. Click is MSU's research compliance system for IRB, IACUC, Biological Safety (IBC), Radiation Safety, and Stem Cell Safety. 

System Status

All Click modules are currently operating normally.

Planned Outage: From Friday, 3 May 2024 at 5pm EDT through Monday, 6 May 2024 at 8 am EDT, the Click™ Research Compliance System will experience a software upgrade and be unavailable to researchers. This will affect researchers with IACUC, Biosafety, Radiation, and Stem Cell submissions. Please plan accordingly. Click IRB module will not be affected.
