​The Human Research Program (HRPP) program and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) require any Principal Investigator (PI) and any staff member involved in Human Subject research to take and pass mandatory web-based courses administered by Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI Program) to which AUB has subscribed. Recertification is also required every three years.
