UCSD Human Research Protections Program

About HRPP

The UCSD Human Research Protections Program (HRPP) exists to promote high quality, ethical research. The HRPP does this by serving as the advocate for the rights and welfare of persons who participate in research programs conducted by UCSD faculty, staff, and students. Though located within the School of Medicine , the HRPP has responsibility for review of research involving human subjects conducted by all Schools, Centers, and Programs of UCSD. The HRPP office assists researchers in complying with federal, state and University policies regarding experimentation involving human subjects, and oversees the review and conduct of research conducted by federally registered Institutional Review Boards (IRBs).
