The University of Central Florida has been recognized for excellence in its research once again, this time by the national accrediting board that oversees the protection of human research subjects.

The accreditation by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) is not a requirement, but it is considered the “gold standard” for human research.

“This distinction, recognizable by funding agencies as well as the nation’s leading universities, will allow us to compete more readily for funding in the biomedical area and beyond,” said MJ Soileau, vice president for Research and Commercialization.
