The HRPP Operations Manual (OM) is the primary location for compiling, organizing, integrating, and pointing to the rules, policies, practices, and guidance encompassing the Mississippi State University Human Research Protections Program (HRPP), including the Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB). The Research Compliance Officer and IRB chair have reviewed and approved the OM and approve each substantial modification or amendment to it.
These policies and procedures are reviewed periodically for any needed changes or updates but at a minimum every five years during the preparation of the Accreditation Site Visit. Revisions may be made at any time, but are made immediately as required by changes in law, ethical standards, institutional policy, quality assurance activities or other considerations. All changes are communicated to the MSU research community accordingly.
The MSU HRPP Operations Manual, along with consent templates, Unaffiliated Investigator forms, instructions, and other resources can be found in myProtocol and also at this link:
