Frequently Asked Questions

ClickTM Stem Cell

  • What is Click?
    Click is a research compliance management system. At MSU, it will manage IRB, IACUC, and EHS compliance activities. This Huron software product is currently in use at several peer institutions, including University of Michigan, Northwestern University, Rutgers University, Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Wisconsin.
  • How do I get access? (I can't login)

    Click login requires an active MSU NetID.

    New Faculty

    Prior to start date, new faculty members must first obtain and activate their NetID.

    Once the NetID is activated, the faculty member's department must submit a generic eARM form to request access as a Click Affiliate.

    Students Not Currently Enrolled

    Students not enrolled in classes for the current semester to login, even if listed on a Click project.

    To access Click when not currently enrolled, the student's department must submit a generic eARM form to request access as a Click Affiliate.

    External Researchers (Non-MSU affiliates)

    External team members can be added to a project through a document upload. External research personnel only need login access to view or edit the study. Contact the Primary Investigator or the Helpdesk if you aren't sure if you need login access.

    Request a NetID to Login to Click
