PRIM&R’s Opportunities for Young Professionals

Since 1974, PRIM&R has prided itself on being the one-stop shop for information on ethical research best practices. To maintain this tradition, and as we look to the next 35 years, we are focusing on incorporating the next generation of research ethics professionals into both PRIM&R and the field in general. If you are a Young Professional, we encourage you to take advantage of the offerings we have designed with you in mind—and we also welcome your feedback on what else you would like to see from us.We know that you need access to education to help you advance in your fledgling career, but budgets are tight. To help out, we’re offering a reduced registration fee to our 2009 Advancing Ethical Research Conference to those born in 1979 or later.While you’re at the conference, we’d like to help you make long-lasting professional connections, so we’re inviting all young professionals to attend the Young Professional Reception on Friday, November 13, immediately following the opening reception. You can stop by to meet other young professionals interested in subject protections, research ethics, and HRPP/IRB operations, and talk about current issues and experiences in the field! Please RSVP by contacting Joanna Cardinal, membership manager, at 617.423.4112, ext. 16.And to get that networking started early, if you’re on Facebook, you can check out the 2009 Advancing Ethical Research Conference event page and see who else will be attending. Or, if you’re on LinkedIn, you can check out PRIM&R’s LinkedIn group and connect with others who will be attending. You can also keep up-to-date on conference happenings by following us on Twitter, and using the hashtag #PRIMR_AER09.Finally, if you are still in school, you can still get involved with PRIM&R by taking advantage of our student membership rate. This category is for those who are still in college or graduate school but want to be first in line to experience world-class professional development. Learn more about the student membership on the PRIM&R website.We look forward to PRIM&R being your professional home for years to come!
