The Air Force Institute of Technology's Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) adheres to the ethical principles for the protection of human subjects summarized in the Belmont Report, and complies with federal regulations, guidance and state laws related to the protection of human subjects. The Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) maintains an Air Force Issued Department of Defense (DOD) Institutional Agreement for Institutional Review Board (IRB) review with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). Under this agreement, all research performed by AFIT will undergo the appropriate IRB review to ensure approval and compliance with DOD and other federal standards.
AFIT's Office of Research and Sponsored Programs oversees AFIT's HRPP and its implementation. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about AFIT's HRPP.
