The Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) has awarded full accreditation to Georgia State University.

“This prestigious accreditation demonstrates Georgia State’s commitment to protecting research participants and promoting high quality research,” said James Weyhenmeyer, Ph.D., Georgia State University Vice President for Research and Economic Development.

AAHRPP is a non-profit organization that provides accreditation for organizations that conduct human research and can demonstrate that their protections exceed the safeguards required by the U.S. government.

To earn accreditation, institutions must meet rigorous standards for quality and protection by providing tangible evidence – through policies, procedures and practices – of their commitment to scientifically and ethically sound research and to continuous improvement.

Accreditation offers assurances – to research participants, researchers, sponsors, government regulators and the general public – that Georgia State is focused first and foremost on excellence.

AAHRPP accreditation is available to U.S. and international organizations that conduct biomedical, behavioral or social sciences research involving human participants. To date, AAHRPP has accredited organizations in 46 states, Canada, China, India, Korea, Mexico, Singapore and Taiwan.
