WASHINGTON, D.C., December 16, 2010—The Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) is pleased to announce that it has accredited the human research protection programs (HRPPs) at three additional organizations, including a private research organization, a prominent children’s hospital, and a renowned university.

Miami Research Associates (MRA) continues the trend of accreditation by leading industry private research sites. Established in 1996, Miami Research Associates is the largest physician-owned multi-specialty clinical research center in the United States. MRA has successfully conducted over 1,000 clinical trials in Phase’s I through IV. The staff consists of over 35 board-certified physician investigators and more than 38 Association of Clinical Research Professionals—certified clinical research coordinators.

These diverse organizations bring the total number of accredited HRPPs to 223, representing nearly 1,100 entities. Following is a list of the newly accredited organizations:

  • Miami Research Associates, Miami, FL
  • The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA
  • Yale University, New Haven, CT

“This addition to the increasing group of accredited research organizations is evidence of the growing public perception that earning AAHRPP’s gold seal is the right and smart thing to do for government, nonprofit, and for-profit organizations,” said Marjorie A. Speers, Ph.D., President and CEO of AAHRPP. “It also increases the number of accredited options for industry sponsors, researchers, and participants.”
