The WVU Office of Research Integrity and Compliance is pleased to announce that the Human Research Protections Program (HRPP) has achieved full reaccreditation by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs, Inc. (AAHRPP). This accreditation has been maintained by the HRPP at WVU since 2008. The WVU HRPP hosted the AAHRPP Site auditors during March 2016 and received full reaccreditation on September 19, 2016 following a lengthy review process.
Reaccreditation was determined after reviewing substantial evidence of adherence to policies, procedures, and practices established by the WVU HRPP. AAHRPP reaccreditation is a continued affirmation of the Institution’s commitment to protecting research participants. That commitment resonates not only with participants but also with researchers, sponsors, government agencies, and the general public. We would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude to those that contributed to obtaining this reaccreditation.
