The CHPS serves as an educational resource for the academic community. Graduate students, post-doctoral trainees and fellows are encouraged to utilize CHPS services and interact with Core directors to enhance their research training experience. The CHPS will assist trainees and junior investigators in developing their research plan. Protocols are submitted for IRB and CHPS review by trainees or junior investigators with the assistance of a PI and/or mentor. IRB and CHPS approval must be obtained prior to beginning the research study.
