The name of the office coordinating with the Texas Tech University Institutional Review Board (IRB) is the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP). The IRB's mission is to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects participating in research at Texas Tech. This website offers step-by-step instructions for submitting human subjects research proposals, forms for proposal packets, and policies and procedures. You will also find training information, references to federal regulations, as well as other resources.
The resource toolbox contains regulations, reports, documents and website links important to human subjects research.
If I am going to do human subject research outside the continental United States, where can I go to see the requirements for conducting research in a particular country?
