HRPP - About Us

25 Science ParkThe goal of the Yale Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) is to assist the University in meeting its ethical and regulatory obligations for the protection of human participants in research. In addition to providing educational support to principal investigators and their research staff, the HRPP provides administrative and regulatory support to four 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). The HRPP also assists the Radiation Drug Research Committee (RDRC) and Embryonic Stem Cell Research Oversight Committee (ESCRO).
