The HRPP uses information in the eIRB to: 

  • conducts review to ensure protection of human subjects.
  • coordinates activity of several entities (ancillary reviews) to facilitate review process and manages communications between the reviewers and study teams.
  • helps prepare regulatory binders.
  • ensures all criteria for approval are met.
  • help determine who needs to be a member of the study team.
  • helps to develop advertisement and recruitment plans and facilitates the Creative Communications review.
