What We Do

The Human Participants Review Board (HPRB) is the name of PLU’s Institutional Review Board (IRB).  Our task is to ensure that all research conducted by students, faculty, staff, and administration is ethically sound and protects the rights and dignity of human participants.

This site provides information on how to apply for HPRB approval, including all necessary forms.  If you have any questions, please contact the current HPRB chair at hprb@plu.edu.

Board Members:

Christine Hansvick, Psychology (Chair)
Harry Papadopoulus, Kinesiology
Joanne Lisosky, Arts and Communication
Lorena Guerrero, Nursing
Stacie Rebar, Community member, PLU Alum

All Investigators MUST take the CITI training course which is good for two years.
