 About Receiving E-Mail From the IRB

  • If you a UAB student or employee, the OIRB will always use your BlazerID as your e-mail address (i.e., YOURBlazerID@uab.edu).
  • If you are not affiliated with UAB, the OIRB prefers to have an email address associated with your research work (e.g., @chsys.org).

Each student and employee configures his or her BlazerID alias to receive e-mail. To ensure yours is set up properly, follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to https://padlock.dpo.uab.edu/cgi-bin/bp/chginfo.cgi
  2. Sign in with your BlazerID and strong password
  3. Enter your "real, host-based e-mail address" (e.g., drjones@ccc.uab.edu, joesmith@yahoo.com) where indicated.
    If you do not know your host-based address, contact your IT specialist.
  4. Scroll down and click "Change!"

Why is it important that I receive e-mail from the OIRB?

  • You could miss vital information about your research.
    If you are not able to receive e-mail through your BlazerID alias, you will not receive courtesy reminders about continuing review of protocols, IRB training news, and other issues related to UAB's Human Research Protection Program.
  • You can avoid having to update your address.
    If you change positions within the university, you can change your BlazerID alias to point to your new email account.
  • Account? Alias? I'm confused!
    An e-mail "account" is attached to an e-mail host server, with storage space for incoming and outgoing email and other features. Examples at UAB include _____@path.uab.edu, _____@mail.ad.uab.edu, ______@peds.uab.edu, and many others.
    An e-mail "alias" is a shortcut to an e-mail account. At UAB, your BlazerID can be used as an alias with the format of YOURBlazerID@uab.edu. That alias automatically forwards e-mail messages to the account you have configured. For example, messages sent to the alias irb@uab.edu are forwarded to the account at irb@mail.ad.uab.edu.
