Open Hours

The HRPP offers Open Hours for faculty, students and support staff who need assistance with preparing an IRB protocol/amendment, determining if a proposed project requires IRB review, any human research related issues or IRB-related policies or procedures.  Our “Open Hours on the Road” service, during which HRPP staff can come to your department or meet with an individual or research team, is also available upon request.

OPEN HOURS for IRB questions will now be held:

Every Tuesday from 12:00-1:00pm in Room 494 at South Street Landing (Jewelry District).

Every Wednesday from 11:00am - 12:00pm in Room 603 at BioMed Center (College Hill).

Additional open hours sessions will be added within departments and announced on Today@Brown.

We are located on the 5th floor of South Street Landing located at 350 Eddy Street.
