The name of the office coordinating with the Texas Tech University Institutional Review Board (IRB) has changed to the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP). The IRB’s mission to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects participating
in research at Texas Tech will not change. The new name will better reflect services
provided by the office that do not involve the IRB. This website continues to offer
step-by-step instructions for submitting human subjects research proposals, forms
for proposal packets, and policies and procedures. You also will find training information,
information on federal regulations as well as other resources.
