The Human Research Protections Program was established to ensure the protection of human subjects who participate in research conducted by the NIH's institutes and centers (ICs). A study was undertaken to identify appropriate infrastructure changes needed to support goals leading to a more centralized and stronger program.
The study revealed some specific ways to enhance the program: establish a training verification system; develop a centralized training records database; and establish a more centralized structure for management and oversight.
