Human Subjects Protections and Institutional Review Board (IRB) Review at the UO

Staff from Research Compliance Services will provide a brief overview of the federal human subjects research protections regulations, and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) application process at the UO. The session will cover what is considered “human subjects research,” and provide ample time for attendees to ask questions about the application process and requirements. Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn about best practices related to the conduct of research involving human subjects, such as recruitment and consent process/materials; issues related to subject privacy, data confidentiality and security; and research with children and vulnerable populations. The session will provide ample time for Q&A between attendees and RCS staff. This session is appropriate for anyone doing or planning to conduct research with human subjects and staff who support research at the UO.

Fall 2020 session will be held  Friday, October 30, 12-1:30 pm
