Electronic research compliance management system


logoAxiom Mentor is an electronic submission system used by SMU investigators to submit research proposals for compliance committee review (IRB, IACUC, & IBC). Financial conflict of interest disclosures are also submitted and managed through the Mentor system; a regulatory requirement for any investigator who receives external funding for research. The Office of Research Compliance processes and manages the submissions received through Mentor.
