Welcome to the University of Arizona Human Subjects Protection Program

The Human Subjects Protection Program (HSPP), as the administrative and regulatory support program to the Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), works in collaboration with the research community to maintain an ethical and compliant research program. The IRBs are the independent review committee charged with the protection of human research subjects. An IRB must review all research and related activities involving human subjects conducted at the University of Arizona or by in which the University is a responsible participant. The University of Arizona HSPP has been accredited by the Association for Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) since 2005, strong evidence of our commitment to the protection of human research subjects.
