McLaren Healthcare Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) is committed to assuring that all research activities throughout its subsidiaries are conducted in a way that promotes the rights and welfare of its participants. This page provides useful information if you are considering participating in research, are currently involved in research, or want to find out more about research from the viewpoint of a participant. General information is provided on the conduct and oversight of research and the protection of human subjects.
By taking part in a research study, you can also contribute to better understanding of how the treatment or intervention works in people of different ethnic backgrounds and genders. By taking part in a clinical trial, you can try a new treatment that may or may not be better than those already available.
If you have questions about research at McLaren Health System, please contact the Human Research Protection Program at (810) 342-1003. Please call this number if you need to speak with an informed individual who is unaffiliated with specific research, have concerns or complaints about the research, research related injury or have questions about your rights as a research participant.
