This year’s Advancing Ethical Research (AER) Conference provided me with the depth of knowledge I was expecting, but also with a new perspective that I had not anticipated. Full disclosure: I went to this conference assuming the pre-conference program would be most applicable and useful to my job. The pre-conference that I attended, IRB201, was, indeed, amazing.

Over the last few weeks, this new skill has carried me far; it has substantially refined my pre-review process, allowing me to more thoroughly and efficiently deliver an IRB protocol to my IRB administrator for her review.
