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.
Reporting Adverse Events:
Principal Investigators (PIs) are reminded of their responsibilities for reporting unanticipated problems or adverse events that occur during research. Failure to do so is a violation of 45 CFR 46.103(b)(5) and could result in the suspension or termination of the protocol. More >>
