LOS ANGELES, May 3, 2004 Cedars-Sinai Medical Center announces that it has been fully accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs, Inc. (AAHRPP), for all research involving the protection of patients. Cedars-Sinai is the only Medical Center in the state of California to be accredited by AAHRPP, a Washington, D.C., based non-profit organization that uses a voluntary, peer-driven, educational model to accredit institutions engaged in research involving human subjects.

During this process, all of the Medical Center's policies, practices, staffing expertise, and resources related to the protection of the rights and welfare of research participants were examined.

"Being accredited reflects our commitment to protecting patients involved in clinical research at Cedars-Sinai," said Shlomo Melmed, M.D., Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs and the Director of the Burns and Allen Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai.

We view voluntary accreditation as an outstanding peer-driven reflection of Cedars-Sinai's commitment to excellence in both the scientific rigor of our research, as well as the uncompromising protection of the rights of our research subjects."
