“These latest accreditations demonstrate the increasing recognition that AAHRPP accreditation is the mark of excellence for human research protection programs, here and around the globe,” said Elyse Summers, AAHRPP president and CEO. “AAHRPP accreditation signifies an organization’s commitment to the highest level of research protections—all to the benefit of the research participants we are pledged to protect.”
AAHRPP accreditation is available to U.S. and international organizations that conduct biomedical, behavioral or social sciences research involving human participants. Accreditation decisions are made quarterly. They continue at a steady pace, reflecting strong interest in every sector of the research enterprise, in the U.S. and abroad.
To date, AAHRPP has accredited organizations in 46 states, Canada, China, India, Mexico, Republic of Korea, Singapore and Taiwan. All major U.S. independent institutional review boards have earned AAHRPP accreditation. In addition, more than 60 percent of U.S. research-intensive universities and 65 percent of U.S. medical schools are either AAHRPP accredited or have begun the accreditation process.
