IRB 101 Agenda

Through lecture, interactive discussions, and case studies, this full-day program will provide attendees with the core concepts and fundamental knowledge needed to succeed as members of a human research protection program (HRPP) and/or IRB. After attending this course, attendees will be able to: understand the ethics, history, and federal regulations as they relate to research involving human subjects; apply these ideas within their institution’s HRPP; and review and discuss real-world protocols in two distinct domains of research: social, behavioral, and educational (SBER) and biomedical. This program is ideal for those new to the field, or those interested in solidifying their understanding of the ethics and regulations governing research.
