Human Subjects Research (IRB)


Understanding Human Subjects Research and whether (or not) to participate in a project can be daunting. The Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP) has created a series of short videos with basic information about research. These videos are intended to help potential participants understand how research works, what questions they should consider asking, and things to think about when deciding whether to participate in a study.

The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) works to protect the rights, welfare, and wellbeing of volunteers who participate in research supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). One way to further this mission is to provide the public with basic information about research and research participation, so potential volunteers can make informed decisions about participating in research.
