What is the Human Studies Program?
The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) is an institutional-wide program administered by the UH Human Studies Program (HSP) under the Office of Research Compliance. The HSP works together with the UH research community to ensure the health, welfare, rights, and dignity of people who participate in UH research. The HSP provides guidance and administrative support to its three UH Institutional Review Boards.
UH Institutional Review Boards (IRBs)
As part of the HRPP, the primary goal of the UH IRBs is to protect the rights and welfare of individuals recruited to participate in research activities conducted under the auspices of the University of Hawai‘i.
As a UH investigator or research staff working on a human research study, you are expected to follow the federal, state, and university policies regarding the protection of research participants. The Investigator’s Handbook will help guide you through the policies and procedures related to the ethical conduct of human research.
