This site is new, and we are continuing to add content.

The Office of Human Subjects Research Protections (OHSRP) carries out the day-to-day operations and regulatory oversight of human research activities within the Human Research Protections Program (HRPP). The OHSRP promotes the protection of rights, safety and welfare of human subjects. It also promotes the NIH's research mandate by: supporting the Intramural Research Program (IRP) in reviewing, administering and managing human subjects research activities; developing NIH policies and procedures consistent with federal regulations and policy; organizing and conducting educational activities for NIH HRPP investigators, research staff and the NIH IRB; and overseeing quality assurance and quality improvement activities to ensure NIH Institutional Review Board (IRB) compliance with federal regulations and policies.”
