What Is the HRPP Committee?

Protecting research participants is the responsibility of everyone within an organization and is not limited to the Institutional Review Board (IRB). The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) committee meets quarterly with a mission to collaborate in the development, coordination, and evaluation of the University’s HRPP in order to:

  • Establish methods to promote transparency and collaboration across the HRPP
  • Identify, evaluate, and prioritize HRPP gaps
  • Review and make recommendations to University leadership regarding the University’s mission to protect participants, uphold ethical standards, and improve HRPP practices
  • Share accountability for and evaluate the overall performance of the HRPP
