Metrics on HRPP Performance

Tip Sheets

Improving the quality of human research protection programs (HRPPs) is a top priority for AAHRPP. Effective and efficient systems of oversight within organizations provide better protections for research participants and produce higher quality research. And collectively, they raise the bar globally to ensure research participants are safe and respected.

From data supplied by client organizations in 2015, AAHRPP has compiled an information database to help research organizations, researchers, sponsors, government agencies, and participants identify and support high-performing practices for HRPPs.

Published below are the 2015 metrics for HRPP performance. The data range from types of research and conformance with regulations and guidance to financial and personnel resources and IRB review times.  The data are presented using the median except where indicated.
