The CRI partners with the following programs at AUB and AUBMC:
HRPP: The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) at AUB is responsible
to safeguard the rights and welfare of human subjects participating in
Biomedical and Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS) research activities conducted
under the auspices of AUB. It is committed to protect, ensure respect and
foster awareness for those rights. This is achieved by governing and
authorizing the conduct of research that follows the three ethical principles
of the Belmont Report namely: Respect for Persons; Beneficence and Justice; and
that abides by the principles of responsible research conduct and scientific
integrity. The Institutional Review Board (IRB), the core component of HRPP, is
the committee formally designated by HRPP to review and approve the conduct of
research involving human subjects at AUB/AUBMC and/or by AUB faculty, students
and staff, regardless of the funding source or the location of the research.
