Human Research Protection Program (HRPP)

The HRPP in partnership with the research community, is responsible for ensuring the safety and welfare of participants in Human Subjects Research conducted under the aegis of USC. HRPP, which is a Division within the Office of Research and Innovation, provides the campus and the four USC Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) with professional guidance and administrative support and oversight.

IRB Tips of the Month!

1. Please remember that information sheets and recruitment are required for most exempt studies in Section 40 in iStar. 

2. Adverse Events that are unexpected, related or possibly related, and are either serious or place subjects or others at a greater risk of harm than was previously known or recognized, must be reported to the IRB as soon as possible, but not later than 10 working days after the investigator becomes aware of the event.
