Policies, guidances, and supporting documents governing human subject research and the protection of particpants comprise the written plan for the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) at Stanford University. The policies are organized into the 20 chapters of the HRPP Policy Manual.
The goal of the HRPP is to protect human research participants by ensuring that in all Stanford research:
- The rights and welfare of human research participants are adequately protected.
- Such research is guided by the ethical principles of respect for persons, beneficence, and justice as set forth in the Belmont Report, and is conducted with the highest level of expertise and integrity.
- Such research complies with applicable laws.
