VCU Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) Blog

The VCU HRPP is dedicated to facilitating ethically and scientifically sound research through robust review of research projects and through effective education and outreach to the VCU research community.

The Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research, in collaboration with the VCU Human Research Protection Program, are pleased to offer consulting hours. These open consulting hours will be hosted VIRTUALLY using Zoom, from 11am to 2pm on Friday, September 11th. The following consultants will be present: IRB, Research Navigation, Informatics, Library, and Grants and Contracts.

The Wright Center is also pleased to have added two new consultants, Community Engagement and Recruitment Specialists!

Faculty, students, staff, and entire study teams from all VCU schools and departments are encouraged to meet with as many or as few consultants as you would like. 

Both drop-in and scheduled consultations are available. To schedule a consultation ahead of time, please complete this scheduling survey. A confirmation email will be sent to you with the Zoom link. If you are dropping in, please also complete this scheduling survey but select “now” as the preferred time. You will be invited to join the Zoom meeting as soon as your consultant is available

To enable privacy during consultations, this Zoom meeting will utilize a virtual waiting room. When you first enter the meeting, you will be placed in a waiting room. The Wright Center staff member running the virtual consulting hours will admit you to the Zoom meeting and place you in a breakout room with your requested consultant.

This opportunity to get questions answered and receive guidance on both new research ideas and existing research studies is open to all members of the VCU community.
