Other Resources

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) website has two educational videos developed by the Division of Education and Development that provide information on topics regarding the DHHS regulations for the protection of human subjects of research described at 45 CFR part 46.

  • One video discusses research use of human biological specimens and other private information.
  • The second video discusses reviewing and reporting unanticipated problems and adverse events.

Each video is approximately 20-25 minutes in length. An institution may reproduce or share these materials for educational purposes and may wish to consider incorporating the materials in their training programs. 

OHRP anticipates the release of additional educational videos in the future on a variety of topics including IRB membership, general informed consent requirements, IRB records, and complex issues with research involving vulnerable populations.
