Human Research Protection Program

The CUNY SPH Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) works in conjunction with the CUNY Central HRPP to promote high quality, ethical research. The office provides regulatory and administrative oversight of human subjects research conducted by CUNY SPH faculty, staff, and students within the school’s programs, and across its affiliated centers and institutes. It also provides educational support to CUNY SPH researchers and assists them in complying with federal, state, and university policies surrounding human subjects research.

The CUNY SPH HRPP office is part of a consortium of 19 campus HRPPs across CUNY, all of which are under the auspices of the CUNY Central HRPP. The CUNY Central HRPP also oversees the review and conduct of research conducted by the university’s three federally registered University integrated Institutional Review Boards (IRBs).
