Human Research Protection Program

OHRP released a revised Common Rule (45 CFR 46) and it went into effect on January 21, 2019.  A comparison of the changes can be found on the HRPP website.  All Common Rule questions can be directed toward Dr. Street.

Texas Tech University is committed to protecting the rights and welfare of individuals participating in research. Texas Tech's Institutional Review Board (IRB) is charged with reviewing all human subjects research in accordance with federal regulations, state laws, and local and University policies (TTU OP 74.09).

The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) serves as a liaison to the IRB and point of contact for participants and researchers.
