PAVE Charter


The purpose of the HSD Post Approval Verification and Education Program (PAVE) is to use a collegial approach to confirm by observation that UW human subjects research is conducted in compliance with relevant federal regulations, state laws, UW institutional polices and IRB-approved procedures.  The PAVE program provides targeted education and tools to the researcher to address identified gaps.  It also contributes to the University’s Human Research Protection Program by identifying (1) needs for systemic education and clarification, and (2) areas of strength and best practice.
