Human Research Review Board (HRRB)
About This Committee
The research community has a responsibility to ensure that the
treatment of human participants in research meets the highest
ethical standards. If the proposed research activity involves human
participants and may contribute, through publication, presentation,
or dissemination to "generalizable knowledge", then the activity
requires review and approval by the UCR Human Research Review Board
(HRRB) before any recruitment or research involving human
participants may begin. HRRB review and approval is required for
all research projects involving human participants, regardless of:
1) whether the project is funded or not, 2) the source of the
funds, if funded or 3) the level of risk posed to participants.
Community Reference Information
The University of California, Riverside, (UCR) research
community has a responsibility to make sure that the treatment of
human participants in research meets the highest standards of
ethics, care, and consideration, and that accurate and current
information is provided to all prospective research participants.
Our goal is to maintain and promote an open and cooperative
relationship between researchers and the greater university
community, and to inform/educate the larger community about
standards for human participant research that all researchers must
abide by in order to conduct their research.

Starting July 1, 2012, UC investigators applying for a new or
renewed reliance on another UC IRB will be required to do so using
