ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UC SAN DIEGO

SUBJECT:      Systemwide Review of Proposed Presidential Policy on Protection of Human Subjects in Research

Dear Colleagues:

The University invites comments on the proposed Presidential Policy on Protection of Human Subjects in Research.

This policy revises the current Protection of Human Subjects in Research policy, last updated in 1981, and describes the responsibilities of the University, its campuses and researchers, in protecting the rights and welfare of human subjects. The Research Policy Analysis and Coordination unit worked with the campus Institutional Review Board (IRB) Directors to comprehensively review what UC says about protecting those who participate in research at UC.

This policy applies to all persons at all UC San Diego locations.

Under the Regentsí Policy, campuses were directed to issue implementing rules for certain policy requirements. This proposed policy constitutes the implementing rules for the San Diego campus and is available on the following website:

This is a formal review of the proposed Implementing Rules. If you have comments for submission in response to the policy review, please provide your written comments to Paula Johnson in Policy and Records Administration at pjjohnson@ucsd.edu no later than April 30, 2020.



Sandra A. Brown
Vice Chancellor for Research
