HRPP Announcements:

  • The IRB no longer requires submission of paper protocols with multiple copies for protocols requesting Full Board review.  All IRB submissions may not by e-mail to  Please make sure the entire protocol and attachments are in one PDF file.

  • The HRPP is thrilled to announce the creation of the Brown human Research Advisory Group (BhRAG)!  This group will meet with HRPP 3-4 times/year to receive advanced training in IRB procedures, advise on HRPP policies and procedures and serve as liaisons between the IRB and their departments.  All faculty and staff who interact with the IRB regularly in their positions are welcome.  All who are interested in joining should complete this brief questionnaire and we will contact them with info about the first meeting.
