Human Subjects Research Protections Program (HRPP)


Welcome to the Human Subjects Research Protections Program (HRPP) at the University of Missouri. This office is responsible for the protection of the rights and welfare of human research participants. Primary focus areas include oversight for the Institutional Review Board (IRB) policies and procedures as well as for compliance oversight as it relates to human subjects research. We have been accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) since 2008.

We strive to advance research in the community that is fair and ethical according to applicable regulations. The information contained within this website will help you if you are new to research at MU, need to access policies and standard operating procedures as well as templates and guidance documents, would like to know when to submit information for IRB meetings, or need help with the eCompliance application and maintenance system or need to complete your required CITI training.

If you have questions please contact us to work with a team member that can provide assistance for your human subjects research project. The Listserv is the primary means of communication for new policies, procedures and announcements. We encourage everyone who has a project with the MU IRB to subscribe.
