Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) & Institutional Review Board (IRB)

United States Marine Corps
The protection for the rights and welfare of research subjects is an accepted service responsibility.
HRPP: The Marine Corps Human Research Protection Program ensures research activities conducted involving people follow the ethical principles for Respect for Persons; Beneficence, and are Just.
IRB: The Marine Corps established an IRB in order to review research to ensure the protection of the rights and welfare of human research subjects. The IRB has jurisdiction over all research involving human subjects. The IRB is authorized to review, recommend approval to the Institutional Official, require modifications in, or withhold approval or suspend approval of research involving human subjects. No human subject research in any form (including recruitment, consent, or data collection) can take place without proper review and approval by the Marine Corps IRB and Institutional Official.
