Cedars-Sinai receives full AAHRPP accreditation for all research involving human subjects

l Center. The IRB has the authority to review, approve, and monitor the progress of all clinical trials. To this end, the IRB operates under a Federal-Wide Assurance (FWA) approved by the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Human Research Protections, to ensure that all research conducted on-site is ethical and complies with federal, state, and institutional regulations.

To help ensure compliance, AAHRPP was established in 2001 by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), and several professional societies, including the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), to improve the quality of research via a voluntary accreditation process that applies rigorous standards for protecting human subjects. The goal was to help institutions reach standards that surpassed even those that are set by state and federal agencies and to help ensure consistency and uniformity among all institutions conducting research involving human subjects.

To become accredited, Cedars-Sinai had to conduct an extensive internal review requiring that every aspect of the hospital's human subjects research protection program met accreditation standards. Once this information was submitted to AAHRPP, a comprehensive site visit was conducted to evaluate the hospital's performance. During the three-day site visit, AAHRPP representatives conducted detailed audits of research records and extensively interviewed Cedars-Sinai's leaders, administrators and staff, investigators and their research teams, as well as members of the IRB.

"Although this was an intensive process for us to undertake, both the self-assessment and the site visit helped to enhance our human research protection program, raising the benchmark for the ethics and scientific merit of research at Cedars-Sinai," commented Thomas M. Priselac, President and CEO of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
