Artemis was developed to enable electronic submission and review of Animal Use Proposals via most modern web browsers. Artemis provides real-time access to information regarding review status, approval status and expiration datesis the portal for submitting new Animal Use Protocols (AUPs) and Amendments for IACUC review, and PIs can log on to Artemis to check the status of the protocol during the review process.  Artemis also stores all current and expired protocols, with access to information such as expiration dates and personnel training status.

titleHow do I start a new animal use protocol (AUP) using Artemis?
  •  After accessing the Artemis system, you will be on your Submissions Pane Page.
  • Under “New Form” you will see the option to Create New ‘New AUP Submission Form.’ This will open a new blank protocol for you.

titleWhy don’t I see the all questions when I first start filling it out?

 Some questions will reveal themselves to you, or not, depending on how you answer earlier questions. For instance, if you give a “no” response regarding conducting surgery, you will never see the detailed surgery questions. These are called “cascading questions.”

  • After accessing the Artemis system, find the AUP in which you wish to change the investigator. Select ‘Copy to New Draft.’ This will launch the AUP.
  • Change the PI and any other information within the AUP that you may need to change.
  • Then choose the ‘Save and Submit Form.’

titleWhat happened to my IACUC protocols from the previous electronic system (BIoware)?

 Information from approved protocols in Bioware was automatically loaded into the Artemis system. If your AUP was created on a paper form (pre-Bioware), only basic information will be in the Artemis system.

titleCan I attach other documents to my Artemis protocol?

 Currently you can only cut and paste text from other documents to the Artemis protocol. Contact the Office of Animal Care and Use if there is critical information to support your protocol that cannot be conveyed as text.
