Human Subjects Committee


Yale University’s Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) maintains Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) to provide the ethical review and oversight of its human research activities.  The IRBs have the authority to grant exemption from review, approve, disapprove, require modification in research protocols and monitor research to ensure that the rights and welfare of research participants are protected.  The IRBs apply the highest standards promulgated by Federal and State regulation and guidance as well as accreditation through The Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs, Inc. (AAHRPP) .
