The Unit Designates conduct an initial review of all new HPRB research proposals from investigators in their respective units. They then forward recommendations to the HPRB Chair. Each Unit Designate also serves as a liaison between the HPRB and the students, faculty, and administrators in their respective units and should be a first point of contact for discipline-specific questions (e.g., use of vulnerable participants and deception in Psychology research, whether a project meets the criteria for Quality Improvement in Nursing).
