Human Research Protection
The Desert Research Institute (DRI) is committed to staying in compliance with Federal Policy (Common Rule) and Department of Health and Human Services Regulations for the Protection of Research Subjects for the very small number of research projects we conduct that involve human subjects. These federal regulations are intended to implement basic ethical principles governing the conduct of human subjects research. The ethical principles are set forth in the report of the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research: Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research (the "Belmont Report"). No DRI faculty, staff, or students should be involved in human subjects research at any level without being familiar with these ethical principles.
