The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) supports, facilitates and promotes the ethical and safe conduct of research with human subjects at Northwell Health. We oversee an Institutional Review Board (IRB)a group of people that includes healthcare professionals, scientists and local community members—that serves to protect participants’ rights and welfare before and during research studies. The IRB offers services in support of clinical research and can be reached at (516) 465-1910.

If you or your loved one have a problem or concern regarding research at Northwell Health, contact the principal investigator for the project. Every project has a principal investigator and his or her contact information is contained in the informed consent document. If you enrolled in a study, you should have been given a copy of that document, so you should have the investigator’s contact information.

If you do not have the contact information or you have contacted the investigator and are not satisfied with the response, please call (516) 465-1910, email [email protected], or report it here. You can be assured that anyone you speak with will hold your concerns in confidence if desired. For our HRPP FAQ, please click here.
