Human Research Protection Program
Administered through the TTUHSC Research Integrity office, TTUHSC IRBs review research
involving human subjects. All human research studies are reviewed by the IRB before
they begin and at least once annually to evaluate risks to subjects and compliance
with federal regulations and institutional policies.
TTUHSC has a Federal-Wide Assurance (FWA) # 00006767 with the Department of Health and Human Services to protect the rights
and welfare of participants involved in research affiliated with this institution.
Two TTUHSC IRBs serve three campuses. For contact information, board membership, and
submission deadlines select your campus below.
