About the Committee

The Committee on the Use of Humans as Experimental Subjects (COUHES) is responsible for reviewing every research project utilizing humans as research subjects, and for devising effective procedures to ensure the adequate review of all protocols. Its principal role is to determine whether subjects used in any research project are protected against undue risk and to ensure that their rights, privileges, and privacy are protected.

COUHES is a Standing Institute Committee that reports to the Vice President for Research.
