How is the HRPP related to the IRB?
As part of the HRPP, the primary goal of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) is to protect the rights and welfare of human research subjects recruited to participate in research activities conducted under the auspices of the University of Utah.
Objectives of the HRPP:
- Promote high quality ethical and transparent research activities by serving as a resource for researchers at all levels
- Advocate for the rights and welfare of participants in research programs conducted by University of Utah faculty, staff, and students.
- The HRPP works with the units of the ORIC providing specialized ethics and training resources, as well as addressing questions about meeting institutional and federal research requirements.
