RSPP/IRB Newsletter

The Latest in RSPP News

Our RSPP/IRB newsletter keeps you up-to-date on a range of human research topics. These topics often include:

  • Best practices for your research
  • Changes to federal law
  • Policy and procedure updates

Latest Issues

Our latest newsletters detail regulatory changes that impact human research studies falling under the oversight of the “Common Rule” and that were initially approved on or after January 21, 2019. These changes stem from the revised Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects, also known as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) “2018 Common Rule.”
