Under the oversight of the Deputy Provost for Research, the Yale Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) is responsible for the protection of the rights and welfare of human subjects in research projects conducted at Yale, by Yale faculty, staff and students, and by investigators from several affiliate institutions. The program provides IRB oversight, administrative support, and educational training for investigators and research staff to ensure that Yale research complies with federal and State regulations, University policy, and the highest ethical standards.

Yale HRPP has maintained a Full Accreditation from the Association for Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) since December 2010.

The Yale HRPP provides administrative and regulatory support to 4 Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) for biomedical research known as Human Investigation Committee (HIC I, HIC II, HIC III, HIC IV) and one IRB for social, behavioral and educational research known as Human Subjects Committee (HSC).
