Re-Accreditation for the Human Subjects Protection Program

In June 2007, the Fox Chase Cancer Center's Human Subjects Protection Program was fully re-accredited by the Association for Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP). A three-day review of the facilities and processes found that Fox Chase Cancer Center met or exceeded all the required safeguards on the rights and welfare of research participants.

Fox Chase Cancer Center was one of the first institutions to be accredited when the program was introduced in 2004, which also made it the first independent, comprehensive cancer care facility in Pennsylvania to qualify.
