AER20

AER20 Logo

Each fall, PRIM&R hosts the annual Advancing Ethical Research (AER) Conference for those working in human subjects protections, research ethics, and oversight. This event brings together 2,500 professionals from public and private institutions, the federal government, industry, and academia, to learn about ethical issues and the federal regulations governing human subjects research and discuss best practices for the review and monitoring of research. Attendees can connect with experts and colleagues in the field to address late-breaking topics and challenges—like implementation strategies for the revised Common Rule and more—through a series keynotes, panels, 100+ breakout sessions, and networking events.
