If you're conducting human subjects research under the auspices of KU's Lawrence, Edwards or Juniper Gardens campuses, the Human Research Protection Program is your partner in ensuring that you're meeting all of the legal and ethical standards required to protect the rights, well-being and personal privacy of research participants while meeting the goals of your scientific inquiry. 

The HRPP includes administrative staff and the Institutional Review Board that reviews projects with greater than minimal risk. 

If you would like to be notified of important updates, changes and other human subjects-related information, email and request to be added to the HRPP mailing list.
