    Human Research Protection Program

    The Research Protection Program, through its Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), is charged with reviewing and monitoring all human subjects research that is conducted in Allina Health facilities or by Allina Health employees. The IRBs also serve as Allina Health’s HIPAA Privacy Boards, and in that capacity are charged with reviewing the use of HIPAA regulated Protected Health Information (PHI) for research purposes.
