ESTR Governance

Management and Governance 

Electronic Submission Tracking and Reporting (ESTR) is a system designed for University-wide use by the Harvard Institutional Review Boards (IRBs).  ESTR is managed by the Research Administration Systems team in Harvard University Information Technology, Administrative Technology Services.

Content, requirements, and policies delivered in ESTR are governed by the Harvard Human Research Protection Program; which includes a leadership committee comprised of members of the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, and the Longwood Medical Area and University Area IRB offices.  The leadership committee regularly reviews feedback from faculty, students and staff for inclusion in system upgrades.  

To provide feedback on the ESTR system, please contact estrhelp@harvard.edu or your IRB office.
