Research with Children - Guidelines and Template Assent and Permission Forms Now Available

If your research involves subjects who are children/minors, be sure to see the new Committee for Protection of Human Subjects (CPHS) Guidelines: Children in Research and Child Assent and Parent Permission.

The CPHS web site also provides three template forms for biomedical studies and three template forms (plus one sample form) for social-behavioral/school-based studies. CPHS and the Office for the Protection of Human Subjects (OPHS) welcome your questions or comments on this additional resource for investigators.
