Human Subjects Research (HRPP/IRB)

Human Subjects Research (IRB)

Research that involves the use of human subjects (through human interaction or through obtaining identifiable data or biospecimens) requires IRB review prior to beginning such a project. The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) is responsible for the administration of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) activities and oversight of human research protections activities such as educational programs and post approval monitoring.
