IRB Analysts

IRB Analysts within the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) are staff who help investigators prepare a submission for approval. We assign studies to the Analysts based on the level of review and the first initial of the Principal Investigator's last name. If you have questions specific to a protocol, even if the protocol has not been submitted for review, please directly contact the appropriate IRB Analyst. Questions about IRB policies and processes in general can be directed to irb-orp@psu.edu.

NOTE: The HRPP has hired 11 additional team members since March 2021. While the letter assignments below are final, and you should contact the appropriate analyst based on the PI’s last name, that analyst may still be in training. Your patience and cooperation as we get our new team up and running is appreciated.
