Human Research Protection Program
The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) provides oversight of all research activities involving human subjects at LG Health, ensuring compliance with federal and state laws and regulations, and ethical standards for human research. It also educates researchers and staff and provides outreach to the public.
Investigators and research staff at the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute and the Heart and Vascular Institute conduct most human subject research at LG Health.
The Cancer Institute is involved with National Cancer Institute cooperative group research studies, as well as some industry-sponsored research. The majority of Heart and Vascular Institute research is industry-sponsored research in which the hospital or The Heart Group of LG serves as a clinical site. Typically, staff engage in cardiology research involving investigational devices and pharmaceuticals.
If you have questions, would like to file a complaint or have a suggestion about research at LG Health, please contact a representative of the HRPP at SM-HRPP@lghealth.org.
