About Human Research Protections (HRP)

HRP manages UCI's human research protections program by providing administrative support to its Institutional Review Boards (IRB), which are responsible for protecting the safety and welfare of human subjects.  Federal regulations, state laws, and UC/UCI policy require IRB review and approval before researchers may conduct research involving human subjects.

HRP staff work directly with investigators and their administrative staff to assist them with understanding IRB requirements and the process for submitting research protocols to the IRB.  HRP also runs an Education and Quality Improvement Program (EQUIP) to educate and train researchers and conduct quality improvement reviews.
