NIH Office of Extramural Research - Protecting Human Research Participants
This course is designed to prepare investigators involved in the design and/or conduct of research involving human subjects to understand their obligations to protect the rights and welfare of subjects in research. The course material presents basic concepts, principles, and issues related to the protection of research participants.
As a part of NIH’s commitment to the protection of human subjects and its response to Federal mandates for increased emphasis on protection for human subjects in research, the NIH Office of Extramural Research released a policy on Required Education in the Protection of Human Research Participants in June 2000. This course is specifically designed for extramural nvestigators and is one (of many) possibilities for meeting the policy requirement.
