The Einstein Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) promotes and protects the rights and welfare of all human research participants. Affiliated organizations include all of the colleges and schools of Yeshiva University, Montefiore Medical Center, Jacobi Medical Center and North Central Bronx Hospital.
Einstein's two IRBs* (formerly known as the Committee on Clinical Investigations (CCI) and the Montefiore Medical Center IRB) facilitate excellence in human research by extending personalized guidance and support to the research community through timely and high quality service, education, review, and monitoring. Two IRB meetings are held monthly to review full board items while all other transactions are reviewed upon receipt on an ongoing basis.
