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.

PLEASE NOTE: Effective today, May 13, 2024, the HRPP is pausing our Office Hours, previously scheduled for Mondays (2-4pm) and Wednesdays (10a-noon), until further notice. This pause is being put in place to allow the HRPP the opportunity to further evaluate the approach for the Transformation Project e-system migration plan.

The research community will be notified when Office Hours are resumed.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at

We encourage all members of the research community to sign up for the VCU HRPP/IRB Mailing List for important updates, as well as viewing our Blog page. In addition, we encourage  you to visit our HRPP Transformation Project webpage, which will be updated with additional information, resources, and tools.
