A Two Day Forum presented in conjunction with the Office for Human Resource Protections (OHRP)
Day One consists of an Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP) workshop relevant to Institutional Review Board (IRB) members, IRB administrators, researchers using human as participants, regulatory specialists, contract research organizations, research personnel, and members of the research community. A special panel will be presented by the IRB members and Ex-Officio’s.
Day Two will be led by research experts, federal agents from OHRP, FDA, and NIH as well as community leaders discussing, in an open forum environment, their perspectives and interpretations about applying human subject protections and conducting research that is significant to urban and rural environments, community services and projects, and how all of us can better serve those communities in which we reside.
