2022 PRIM&R 

Annual Conference

December 12 - 15

Workshops, December 6 and 8

A New Model for a New Era

Bringing together our animal care and use and human subjects protections communities, we will offer a single PRIM&R Annual Conference (PRIMR22) on December 12-15 (Workshops on December 6 and 8). This year’s event will take place virtually

With the entire research oversight community under one roof PRIMR22 will support and encourage holistic thinking about the research continuum to achieve a shared goal of advancing ethical, responsible, and high-quality research.

As the research enterprise evolves and modernizes, we look to do the same with our educational programs.  PRIMR22 will address research concerns such as reproducibility and translatability demands by looking at the entire research lifecycle. Dive deep into the latest emerging research technologies like gene editing and big data require coordination and communication as well as new approaches to oversight.

PRIM&R’s research community have responsibilities that span the entirety of a research oversight program. Join PRIMR22 Conference to learn and share with other administrators who face the same challenges of supporting research rigor, managing conflicts of interest, and addressing noncompliance.
