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.

Welcome to IRBNet!

As of October 1st, 2014, Edgewood?s HPRB has moved to accepting research proposals through IRBNet, an online submission tool. To the right you will find a link to IRBNet and all of the resources (training documents to lead you through the process) you will need to submit your proposal. If you are having trouble with the system or would like to schedule a time to meet with an HPRB representative to receive training for IRBNet, please email

We have also provided updated consent form templates (formal, implied, assent) that we would like all researchers to utilize to help standardize the consent process at Edgewood. Finally, the proposal form and a document with instructions for completing the proposal are also provided.

We are excited to implement this new system and are eager for your feedback so if you are experiencing issues or have questions or concerns, please let us know.
