The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has made changes to the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (a.k.a. the "Common Rule") which will go into effect on January 21, 2019. The revisions aim to "modernize, simplify, and enhance" oversight for human subjects research in the United States to address changes in the nature of research since the original publication of the Common Rule in 1991. This letter is to inform investigators and research staff of some of the changes that will occur in coming months.
