Human Research Protections Program (HRPP): The NYU Washington Square HRPP is directed by Scott Fisher and includes the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and a Quality Assurance Post-Approval Monitoring program.

The IRB is comprised of faculty and staff from throughout the University in addition to a non-affiliated community member who together review human subjects research studies conducted under the auspices of NYU Washington Square. The IRB Administrative Office provides IRB support, training to the research community, and assists researchers in obtaining IRB approval through the Cayuse Human Ethics electronic submission system.

The Quality Assurance Post-Approval Monitoring Program further ensures that NYU human subject research is in scope with the approved protocol, compliant with applicable regulations/laws and University policies/guidance and provides additional training and support for the creation of successful IRB protocols.
