Human Research Protection Program
University of Michigan

The HRPP is an integrated institution-wide program coordinated by the Office for the Vice President for Research in concert with the Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs, Chief Financial Officer, Provost, and consultation with the Office of the General Council. Major components of the HRPP include the nine Institutional Review Boards for human subjects research (IRBs) and several additional committees that provide research review, such as the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC), the Conflict of Interest Review Committees (COI-OVPR, COI-MED), the Radiation Policy Committee (RPC), the Investigational Drug Service (IDS), the Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMCCC), the Michigan Clinical Research Unit (MCRU), the Biomedical Engineering Unit (BEU), and the Tissue Procurement Service (TPS).
