Department of Research Programs
The Department of Research Programs (DRP) facilitates research and ensures all regulatory standards are met at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. DRP's protocol navigators, biostatisticians, human protections administrators, business cell staff, and leadership work together to assist our researchers.
DRP staff supports the work of the Internal Review Board, expedites the review and approval of research protocols, determines whether or not research involves Walter Reed, and endorses research projects that will be reviewed by an external institution review board.
DRP's Center for Nursing Science & Clinical Inquiry provides support for research and consultations for evidence-based practice projects. Additionaly, the DRP houses a state-of-the-art biomedical research laboratory capable of supporting a wide range of clinical laboratory studies.
