Research Integrity & Education

Human Subjects Research (IRB)

The University of Denver is committed to protecting the rights and welfare of individuals participating as subjects in research. The Office of Research Integrity and Education is home to the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) charged with reviewing and overseeing human subjects research.

Research that involves the use of human subjects (either directly or through records or other data such as specimens) requires human subjects 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.
