IRAS

Integrated Research Application System. A system in the UK which is meant to streamline some aspects of performing research on human patients by automatically completing all forms required for a particular study, including those for ethics committees, governance departments, and the Medicine and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency. The forms are then processed by the relevant bodies. Once global permission is granted, IRAS generates a list of documents needed by local departments—e.g., CVs of local researchers, local versions of patient information and study documentation.
