Human Research Protection Program

  • The mission of Allina Health's Human Research Protection Program (HRPP), and its Institutional Review Board (IRB), is to protect the rights and welfare of subjects involved in human research overseen by this organization. This includes human subjects research involving Allina Health employees, facilities, patients or data.

    Allina Health Institutional Review Board (IRB)

    Allina Health has an internal Institutional Review Board (IRB) that reviews and provides ongoing IRB oversight for studies and has engaged a number of external IRBs to help with the review of research.

    The Allina Health HRPP uses the electronic submission system, IRBNet (, for the submission and record-keeping of studies to the IRB. All new studies, regardless of reviewing IRB, should be submitted in IRBNet.

    All submission requirements, instructions, and forms are located in the Forms and Templates tab when you log in to IRBNet. To access these documents, researchers will need to set up a user profile and affiliate with Allina Health.
