For Board Members

The Tulane Human Research Protection Office (HRPO) assists Institutional Review Board (IRB) Members in the review process of human subject studies. As part of that effort, this portion of the site contains resources for the Board Members.

The HRPO will provide annual evaluations of IRB Members (IRB Chair, Vice-Chair, and IRB Members) regarding their IRB performance and duties.  All members will be allowed to provide feedback and/or comments/suggestions on an on-going basis.
