UB Research and Economic Development will provide training on all electronic systems utilized to support research activities and compliance.  In addition to training, we will serve as a support system for their use within UB's research community.

What's Happening in Training

Spotlight on the Click Portal

The Click Portal automates the submission, review, and approval processes for a research protocol while managing all major administrative aspects of the research and compliance lifecycle – from proposal development and submission through compliance checks, negotiations, award setup and award management to eventual project closeout. 

We currently offer scheduled training sessions in specific active modules, and can work to schedule special group training sessions upon request.

Active Modules

The OnCore Enterprise Research System

OnCore is a Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) developed by Forte Research Systems that supports academic medical centers, cancer centers, and healthcare systems around the country.  OnCore has been purchased by the University at Buffalo to support research activities and compliance, which will allow for enhanced trial management, robust reporting, enrollment tracking, and accurate clinical research billing.  The OnCore Support Team is currently offering training sessions and open office hours to support end users.

Integration between OnCore and the Click portal will ensure that protocols submitted and reviewed by the IRB within Click are seamlessly transitioned to the OnCore system.  The combined systems will manage the entire lifecycle of a research project, from protocol creation to project closeout.


REDCap is a secure web platform, developed by Vanderbilt University, for building and managing online databases and surveys. UB provides this application to researchers collecting information as part of their project. Training can be found at the link below.
