Research Ethics and IRB Processes for Community Based Research

Date: Friday 11/30/2012
5 Year(s) 2 Week(s) 3 Day(s) ago
Time: 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Organizer: Barbara Lamphere ( )
Notes: Description:


All human subject researchers must understand research ethics and comply with Institutional Review Board (IRB) regulations aimed at protecting the “ rights, safety, and welfare of human subjects” participating in research. But those who do community-based research, seeking deeper and more reciprocal relationships with research partners, face a unique set of challenges.




                This workshop addresses the special concerns of faculty and graduate students who carry out community-based research.




· Cheryl Byers, Assistant Vice President for Research Integrity and Compliance, will help walk you through the IRB application process with particular focus on those topics salient to community-based research.




· Associate Professors Stephanie Marhefka and Eric Buhi of the College of Public Health will provide perspectives from the field on ways to work with the IRB to design successful community-based projects. The format will be interactive, and we encourage faculty and graduate students to come with questions from their own research.
