Mission of HRPO
and the IRB
Our mission is to protect the rights and welfare of participants in “human research” as defined in 45 CFR 46.102(d) and (f) and “clinical investigations” as defined in 21 CFR 50.3(c).d
Tip of the Week
Running out of room to store paper consent documents? You can now scan consents during an open study, or after a study has closed, and destroy the original hard copy document. A new policy and procedures for scanning consents is available at OVCR’s “Guidance For Electronic Storage of Research Documents“.
Our office uses data collected from carefully defined performance metrics to measure results and ensure continuous quality improvement of our program. These metrics are also intended to provide a better understanding of the IRB process.
