eIRB Training Sessions:

eIRB is the new web-based application routing and tracking system. The system will increase the efficiency of the approval and administrative processes for projects and protocols involving human subjects in research. It is designed to replace the cumbersome and paper-intensive process under which applicants currently apply for IRB approval of study proposals. eIRB has been developed to standardize and computerize the Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) at RBHS.

Training dates are available here.


 

Conducting Internet Research: Challenges and Strategies for IRBs

Venue:             Webinar
Date/Time:        5/8/2014  2-3pm
Location:           http://videocast.nih.gov
Event Sponsor:  National Institutes of Health
Cost:                Complimentary
Event Details:   
The current HHS regulations for the protection of human subjects in research were promulgated well before the widespread use of the Internet in the conduct of human subject research, and assessing how the regulatory requirements apply to this type of research can be challenging for both investigators and IRBs. This session will address how specific requirements of the HHS regulations apply to research using the Internet and discuss strategies for managing the relevant ethical issues and regulatory considerations. The speaker will be Laura M. Odwazny, Senior Attorney with the Office of the General Counsel, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
[The event will be accessible live and archived. The archived recording will be available a few weeks after the session at the OHRP website www.hhs.gov/ohrp.

Webinar on Ethical Issues in Personalized Genomic Medicine

The Hastings Center, the American Medical Association (AMA), and the PBS award-winning science series NOVA recently partnered to produce a webinar on personalized genomic medicine and the ethical issues it raises.

The webinar draws on Hastings' co-production with NOVA, Cracking Your Genetic Code, a one-hour documentary that received major funding from the National Institutes of Health. It aired on March 28, 2012, and was seen by 3.5 million viewers. The show examined ethical issues raised by personalized genomic medicine such as genetic determinism, privacy, understanding risk, and "designer babies."
   
The recorded webinar is available free online. Please feel free to share this link with your colleagues.
   
The PowerPoint presentation from the webinar can be downloaded here.

Presenters include Dr. Sandra Fryhofer, chair of the AMA Council on Science and Public Health; Rachel Connolly, Director of Education at NOVA; and Mary Crowley, Director of Public Affairs and Communications at The Hastings Center.
