NEW! Online Compliance Project Management Program
The Loyola University Office of Research Services launched a new online proposal submission and tracking system called "CAP" (short for Compliance Approval Package). This new program is the portal for managing all your projects that require submission to the Radiation Safety Committee.
The ORS understand that transitioning to the new web-based system may pose challenges. If you have questions, need assistance, or have feedback, please do not hesitate to contact Andrew Ellis, Asst. Dir. of Research Compliance, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 773-508-2689.
