Our Mission

The mission of the Edgewood College Human Participants Review Board (HPRB) is to assure the highest quality of research involving human participants conducted under the auspices of the college.  Edgewood College is committed to following Federal Regulations for the protection of human research participants.  The HPRB’s primary function is to ensure protection of human subjects through the review, approval, modification, or disapproval of research applications submitted by faculty, staff, and students.  Any member of the Edgewood College community who is involved in research with human participants must be in compliance, regardless of the project or source of project funding.

Coming Soon... IRBNET! is an electronic submission system for IRBs like Edgewood College's HPRB to receive research proposals. We will transition to accepting all HPRB proposals via as of October 1st, 2014. We hope that this system will make the HPRB process more efficient and straightforward for you. However, a bit of training is required before being able to utilize the system. Below are 2 training documents that will explain how to create usernames and submit proposals. As the transition date approaches, there will be more opportunities offered by HPRB to receive training for Irbnet.

If you have any questions, please let us know!
