Exchange YOUR ideas and strategies for IRBs/HRPPs

2009 Advancing Ethical Research Conference – Call for Poster Abstracts!
Deadline for Submission – January 30

We encourage you to consider participating in the Annual Poster Presentation at PRIM&R’s 2009 Advancing Ethical Research Conference!

The development and presentation of Scientific or Programmatic Posters promote interdisciplinary sharing and collaboration, and facilitate the exchange of ideas, information, and practical strategies for managing the many challenges faced by human research protection program (HRPP) professionals. Last year, nearly one hundred posters were displayed, four of which were selected for the panel session, and 16 of which were selected for moderated discussions.

Posters may be based upon either new program initiatives or empirical research, and fit into one of two categories:

  • Programmatic Abstracts describe novel or innovative approaches to the management, function, and operations of IRBs and HRPPs. If you have created and implemented a successful new program or procedure this year, please consider sharing it with your colleagues.
  • Scientific Abstracts address empirical studies related to research ethics. PRIM&R conference attendees are hungry for cutting edge research results that can improve the IRB/HRPP’s functioning at their respective institutions, so please “strut your stuff” and be part of our vibrant marketplace of ideas and information.
