Despite their significant importance in society and communities, there is a scarcity of research on the undocumented immigrant population. In addition, only a handful of studies address the social and emotional concerns of undocumented immigrants and students. At AER18, panelists Gene Gloeckner, PhD; Elizabeth Jach, MA; and Colleen Kohashi, MA, CIP, presented ways to ethically and sensitively conduct research with undocumented immigrants. Read more

The teaching of ethical principles is included in many courses that train researchers on  “responsible conduct of research”. The IRB 101sm preconference program at the 2018 Advancing Ethical Research Conference (AER18), however, was unique in describing the history of the development of modern research ethics, and then providing practical application in real research practice.

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) (and other Federal Agencies) plans to implement the revised version of the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects, or “Common Rule,” on January 19, 2019.

As I was pursuing my doctorate, I worked as the compliance administrator for the IRB office. My dual-role afforded me an insider’s view into the challenges student researchers face when accessing IRB related information. As the newly hired full-time research compliance manager, I continue to support students new to research. I am attending the 2018 Advancing Ethical Research Conference (AER18) to learn how other compliance administrators support new researchers and build trust between researchers and diverse communities. I am particularly interested in how other compliance administrators support intercultural communication. Read more

I was very excited to learn of the opportunity to become a member of the Blog Squad for the 2018 Advancing Ethical Research Conference (AER18). I am the Research Director for the Department of the Emergency Medicine and serve as the Vice Chair for the IRB at The Lincoln Medical Center in The Bronx, New York. Initially, I became familiar with the IRB as a Principal Investigator, when I conducted a research project to fulfil the requirement for Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) fellowship training. I quickly realized that research is vitally important to for the advancement of medical science and I also understood that human subjects protections, particularly in children and other vulnerable populations, is critical. As I practiced in a neighborhood of diverse and low-income households, I appreciate the importance that subjects’ rights not be violated, and that they not be unduly coerced to participate in research. It is also important that participants enter into research studies voluntarily and with sufficient information and understanding. Read more
