Human Research Protections

Mission Statement

The mission of the Presbyterian Healthcare Services (PHS) Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP) is to advance the ethical treatment of research participants and ensure the responsible conduct of research by (1) safeguarding the rights, privacy, and welfare of human participants in research projects conducted under the auspices of PHS; and (2) facilitating a culture of respect, integrity, responsibility, and trust; and (3) providing timely and high quality education, review, and monitoring for human research projects.

The PHS OHRP adheres to the principles described in the Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research (the “Belmont Report”) by the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects in Biomedical and Behavioral Research. PHS OHRP activities are conducted in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations and guidelines, and with PHS institutional policy.

The PHS OHRP provides administrative and technical support to researchers, and to the PHS Institutional Review Board (IRB).
