NEW!  Read this first!!

As of 21 January 2019, new Federal, DoD, and DON Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) policies are in effect. The policy updates will immediately and substantially change the manner in which human subjects research activities are submitted, reviewed, approved, and conducted at NPS. These changes are intended to address and recognize evolving technologies that have impacted modern research activities, to account for new kinds of research that have been developed, and to facilitate the conduct of minimal risk research.

For those faculty, staff, and students who have already had their IRB protocols approved, these new policy updates will not impact their research.  These changes will only impact new research that begins after the 21 January implementation date and long-term protocols (which exceed one calendar year) that will be transitioned to the new policy requirements.

Choose the relevant tab below for the forms appropriate for your protocol.
