The Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects

The Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects (CPHS) is the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Dartmouth College- a federally mandated committee with the charge of overseeing institutional research projects involving human participants. The CPHS serves as the IRB for Dartmouth College and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

The mission of the CPHS is to protect the rights and welfare of research participants.

The CPHS relies on the ethical principles identified in the Belmont Report in its review of research projects. These principles are respect for persons, beneficience and its corollary non-maleficence, and justice.

The CPHS also adheres to applicable federal regulations for human subject protection. These regulations include 45 C.F.R. 46 and, when applicable, 38 C.F.R. 16, and 21 C.F.R. Parts 50 and 56. The CPHS recognizes and applies when appropriate the guidance of the International Committee on Harmonization (ICH), and Good Clinical Practices (GCP) as acknowledged by the Food and Drug Administration.

All submissions to CPHS must be completed via RAPPORT.  RAPPORT is a web-based integrated research administration system that will manage submissions and correspondence with CPHS.  Access RAPPORT at the link below.
