The Human Subjects Office (HSO) assists UGA faculty, staff, and students in meeting the highest ethical and professional standards when conducting research with human subjects.
Attention UGA Research Community
Investigators who will be seeking NIH support of clinical trial should review the new and pending NIH policies including: the NIH Definition of a Clinical Trial the Requirements for Registering & Reporting NIH-funded Clinical Trials in ClinicalTrials.gov requirements for Good Clinical Practice Training, and the Single IRB Policy for Multi-site Research. Please contact the Human Subjects Office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-542-3199) for more information.
Our Vision is to enable UGA to become a global leader in human subjects research.
Our Mission is to ensure the UGA research community has practical, accessible resources and tools to ensure the ethical protection of human subjects in research. We do this work by:
- convening, engaging, and supporting a diverse and inclusive Institutional Review Board (IRB); and
- ensuring that policies and educational programs both advance a culture of compliance and safety and elevate the integrity and quality of research in order for the UGA research community to achieve the highest professional standards.
We want the UGA research community to view the Human Subjects Office as a partner in compliance and as a group of dedicated professionals who believe in UGA’s research mission and care about the way we do our work.
Our core Values are:
- Continuous quality improvement
- Lifelong learning
- Problem solving
