For the Public

Research is the basis upon which we improve the health care of our population. Participating in research assists researchers in understanding fundamental problems in human biology and assesses new therapies for disease. In order to assure the safest possible conditions and highly ethical conduct in human research, the Icahn School of Medicine maintains a Program for the Protection of Human Subjects.
