El Paso Children's Hospital Research

If you are planning to conduct human subject research at El Paso Children's Hospital (EPCH) and/or utilize EPCH services and resources then please take the following into consideration: 

  1. In addition to TTUHSC El Paso IRB approval of the study, approval from EPCH research compliance is required. It is your responsibility to contact EPCH and request this approval prior to initiating the study or requesting study related services/resources from EPCH.

  2. Per the research agreement between TTUHSC El Paso and EPCH, there are various fees that may be charged by EPCH for research related services provided in the support of TTUHSC El Paso research studies.   

  3. If your study requires billable services from EPCH, you should contact the EPCH compliance research manager for a quote. While the quoted fees will remain in effect for the duration of the study, they may not be applicable to other studies as pricing does change. Please do not take it for granted that pricing provided for one study can be used when negotiating contracts for another study.
