Human Research Protection Program

Initial Protocol Application Sample Questions

The Initial Protocol Application, like all of the HRPP webforms, is an interactive form with built-in logic. That means that the answers to some questions will reveal other questions. Only the questions that need to be answered for your specific research protocol will be visible to you. Please provide complete and detailed answers to every question that you see.


Below is a preview of the questions on the Initial Protocol Application, organized by section of the form, which you may want to use to prepare your response (e.g., in Word) before using the form. Many of the conditional questions can be seen in this sample, even if you may not see them when you are working on your submission.
