About Us

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

The CPHS invites questions, suggestions, comments, concerns, or complaints from any individual who may be involved or observes research activities conducted by investigators at Dartmouth College. This invitation extends to research participants and their friends and family members, as well as investigators, research and clinical staff, students, employees, and local community members.
