Research Subject Advocate

NIH Research Subject Advocacy Program available for OSU research studies

In 2001 the National Institutes of Health (NIH) formally implemented a Research Subject Advocacy (RSA) program through its network of general clinical research centers. 

The RSA program at Ohio State exists for all studies that utilize the services of the Clinical Research CenterResearch Subject Advocates are also available upon request for consultation or to serve in such capacity at the discretion of either an OSU IRB, the study sponsor, or the Principal Investigator of a study.

The Senate Advisory Committee for Human Research Protection recommends the use of an independent party (e.g. RSA) during the process of consent for high risk studies, such as those that involve gene transfer.
