Dear SPH Researchers:
Happy New Year! We are pleased to present our first Annual Report, with facts and figures about the SPH HRPP Office’s activities in 2018. HRPP engagement increased across the board from 2017, as reflected in the growing numbers of HSR Assessment Form entries and IRB application submissions that were received.
In addition to issuing HSR determinations, processing IRB applications, and providing ongoing guidance to researchers, last year, our office aimed to enhance supports and resources for the SPH research community, including the introduction of Video Tutorials and strengthening HRPP processes for fieldwork students.
We look forward to a productive 2019 as we continue to support SPH faculty, students, and staff in their human subjects research activities. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, comments, or suggestions.
SPH HRPP team
