Major Changes in Research Rules & Oversight: Making Progress or Creating New Problems?
Annual Research Ethics Conference
Researchers and research participants across the country are facing big changes in the rules governing the ethical conduct of research. Many studies are affected, including those in basic science, biomedical research, the social sciences, and research with human participants. This conference features senior leaders from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Partners HealthCare, and Harvard University, who will analyze changes in oversight of emerging technologies, the Common Rule governing research with human participants, and the federal redefinition of “clinical trials” to cover more studies. Finally, a panel with community and local experts will join these speakers to debate the impact of these changes. This University of Minnesota Research Ethics Conference will be especially valuable for researchers, clinicians, study coordinators, oversight personnel, research participants, patient advocates, students, and trainees.
Presented by the Office of the Vice President for Research; Consortium on Law and Values in Health, Environment & the Life Sciences; and Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota
