The Broad's Office of Research Subject Protection (ORSP) is committed to helping our community adhere to federal regulations and institutional policies governing the protection of the human subjects who make our research possible.
We help guide investigators and their teams through the submission processes at various Institutional Review Boards (IRBs). This includes careful review of research consent forms to confirm the appropriate use of human biological samples and/or data. We also store all submission records, and serve as the primary point of contact with the IRBs.
We welcome the opportunity to provide one-to-one and group training in human subject protection, regulatory requirements, and online submission systems. Ultimately, our goal is to partner with our scientific colleagues throughout the Broad community to advance the institution's mission and commitment to ethical research.
