Where else will you find…

…more than 300 representatives of federal agencies?
…more than 250 subject matter experts on our faculty?
…more than 2,000 subject matter experts in the audience and all around you?
…more than 165 educational sessions?
…and everything else an IRB/HRPP could ever want?

The 2009 Advancing Ethical Research Conference is quickly approaching, and the PRIM&R office is humming with excitement to bring you all of the above, and more. Your last chance to register for this conference is this Friday, November 6 at 5:00 PM ET.

Among our goals is a determination to educate, energize, and inspire our attendees so that they can in turn educate, energize, and inspire their colleagues back home. We hope that you will be in the audience when Dr. Josh Sharfstein, the Deputy Commissioner of the FDA, kicks off the program with a keynote address on November 14.Not yet sure about whether you’ll be there? We know that it’s an economically challenging time, but as you consider whether you can afford the cost of this conference, please also consider the costs of not attending. The need to stay abreast of regulatory changes and to understand the ever-present and emerging ethical issues don’t disappear because resources are scarce.In this time of diminished resources, we believe that investing in the PRIM&R AER Conference is a low-risk way to increase your staff’s knowledge, motivation, and commitment to our shared mission of advancing research and protecting the health and welfare of human subjects.
