Human Research Protection Program (HRPP)

All CUNY colleges including York College have an HRPP office.

It is important to remember that when using Human Subjects they are treated in an ethical manner. Therefore, under this program, ORSP allows your research to use Human subjects under Federal Guidelines. It is our duty to project both the Human Subject involved in the research and the researchers involved, so please be sure to review all necessary materials that involve human subjects.

This office is here to assist faculty, staff, and students with applying relevant federal regulations and CUNY policies to research protocols involving data collected from human subjects. Here are some general questions you may have when dealing with human subjects:

What Are the Rules and Regulations in Using Human Subjects?

For more information regarding why you might want to use a human subject, the procedure in using human subjects, and who should be involved when using a human subject please visit the Regulations to Protect Volunteers in Research web page.

What Do You Do When an Incident Happens?

It is best to avoid any accident when dealing with human subjects, but we are aware that accidents happen, and in the event an accident occurs with a Human Subject, you must immediately Contact the Office of Human Protection (OHRP). For the direct Link to report an incident please visit Guidance on Reporting Incidents to OHRPR.

ORSP would like to make your research experience as serene as possibly. In order for this to happen, we need you to do you part, and allow ORSP to do its part in assisting you in the process. If you are experiencing any difficulties or are in need of any assistance, please feel free to contact us, or for more specific assistance please contact OHRP.
