Management Research On-Line (MROL) 

My Research On Line (MROL) is a web-based service available to all principal investigators and co-investigators with research awards administered by the University of Toronto. It is an important tool to help comply with the monthly review and online sign-off requirement for each fund. Administrative support staff may also use this service to view PI accounts. Researchers can view the status of their research applications, ethical reviews, or research Funds administered by the University. Principal investigators may view their Funded Research Digests (FReDs), the balance of their research funds, and the details of expenses that have been charged to their funds. Accounting information related to FIS research accounts is refreshed daily.
