Rather than ensuring mere compliance with the federal regulations, IU's HRPP, consisting primarily of the Human Subjects Office and the IU Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), strives to adhere to the highest ethical standards in its protection of human research participants and seeks to further develop the methods and mechanisms for protecting human research participants.  All faculty, staff, and students should familiarize themselves with the policies and procedures of the IRB.
