I’m very excited about the opportunity to be a member of the Blog Squad for the 2017 Advancing Ethical Research Conference (AER17). As an IRB coordinator at Arizona State University, I attended my first AER conference in 2016, and I learned that the best part of PRIM&R is the community it builds. Through conference sessions and roundtables, PRIM&R brings together stakeholders from across the spectrum—policy makers, board members, staff, researchers—to discuss, present, debate, and learn from one another. The AER conferences give us incredible opportunities to converse and come to collaborative understandings of regulations and ethical considerations surrounding human subjects protections. With changes being implemented soon, learning from one another will be more important than ever. Read more

I thought the process seemed interesting, and the protections very important.

And when my colleague at the IRB left later that year, I applied for and was ultimately accepted to fill his shoes as an IRB Administrator. Read more

Last month, the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) jointly released final guidance on meeting minutes for IRBs who oversee human subjects research under FDA and/or HHS regulations. The final guidance includes a few small changes from the draft released in November 2015. This is the first time the two agencies have jointly issued guidance in this area; the guidance summarizes how the agencies believe IRBs and institutions should apply the federal regulations as they pertain to the creation of IRB meeting minutes.
