Update on Scientific Assessments and Human Research Protection Program

Effective July 1, 2013, the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) will facilitate scientific assessment of new biomedical research proposals. This assessment may be used to fulfill the scientific review requirement when submitting applications for full committee medical reviews to the Institutional Review Board (IRB).

More information about the IRB's scientific review requirements, including other options for meeting these requirements, may be found here.

HRPP facilitated scientific assessment is requested through a module in the CTR Portal. Download the job aid detailing how to register your project and request assessment.

The CTSI will no longer accept new requests for scientific reviews or assessments.

Contact the Research Navigator if you have further questions.
