The Office of the Human Research Protection Program (OHRPP) is the administrative arm of the UCLA Human Research Protection Program (HRPP). The OHRPP in partnership with the research community is responsible for ensuring the safety and welfare of participants in Human Research Projects conducted under the aegis of UCLA. The OHRPP, which is a Division within the Office of Research Administration, provides the campus and the five UCLA Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) with professional guidance and administrative support.
UCLA began Phase 2 of the ramp-up plan on June 8, 2020
Conducting Research During the COVID-19 Public Health Outbreak: All researchers are asked to review the information provided on the UCLA Research Ramp Up website to determine whether and how current Policy may affect their IRB approved or exempt research. Information includes:
- an overview of the ramp-up process,
- health and safety guidelines, and
- appendices describing requirements for different types of research.
Researchers who were required to pause in person research activities in response to March 2020 research ramp down requirements must comply with the requirements outlined in the May 26, 2020 Research Ramp-Up Plan before recommencing in person research activities.
