The federal Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) is teaming up with University of California San Diego and local research institutions to host a Research Community Forum in San Diego, California.

Institutional review board (IRB) members, IRB administrators, clinical investigators, research scientists & support staff, sponsors, contract research organizations, government regulators and members of the research community are encouraged to attend. 

WORKSHOP | February 27th 

The workshop is an opportunity for the research community to engage directly with OHRP staff to explore and understand how to interpret and apply the U.S. Health and Human Services regulations and policies on human research protections. This will be a great chance to learn about the revised Common Rule! 

CONFERENCE | February 28th 

The conference will foster thought-provoking topics and stimulating discussion and will include break-out sessions covering a broad range of research topics including central/single IRBs and related issues, innovative care, quality improvement, technology, the learning healthcare environment and more!
