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).

The IORG number for UCSD is 0000210 and currently effective through April 15, 2019. The program operates under Federalwide Assurance number, FWA00004495. A statement letter about the FWA is available here. UCSD's HRPP supports six federally registered IRBs: five Biomedical IRBs IRB00000353; IRB00000354; IRB00002758; IRB00005945, which specializes in pediatric projects; and IRB00009940, which specializes in oncology projects; and one Social and Behavioral Sciences IRB, IRB00000355.
