Mission Statement of the UICOM-P Human Subject Protections Program

The mission of the UICOM-P HSPP is to ensure that there are adequate mechanisms developed and maintained to maximize the protection of the rights and welfare of all human subjects involved in research. The HSPP works with the institution, affiliated institutions (i.e., those institutions holding an FWA and UICOM-P IRB Authorization Agreement), investigators, research staff, students, and the UICOM-P IRB as equal stakeholders in this goal. It is also the mission of the UICOM-P HSPP to be an exemplary and innovative HSPP fulfilling the mandate to uphold the public's trust to respect and protect people who participate as subjects of human research in the Central Illinois region.
