The new site recognizes the collaborative efforts required among members of the Yale community in protecting human research participants. It is designed to provide informational materials by user category: Investigators and Research Staff, IRB Members and Staff, Research Participants, and Yale Research Affiliates. Each user category contains relevant tools and information that have been expanded and enhanced from materials on the existing IRB sites.
It’s important to note that the HRPP policies and procedures have undergone an extensive process of review and revision, resulting in the creation of many new procedures, checklists and guidance documents. These documents reflect many of the questions frequently asked of the IRB by researchers and are designed to help users understand the critical components of conducting and reviewing human research.
The site has quite extensive sets of links and resources for PIs, research participants and others.
