Gain insights for advancing equity and justice and promoting flexibility and innovation in research oversight processes.

IRB topics on the agenda include:

  • Bringing the IRB to the people, and the people to the IRB
  • Understanding prisoner vulnerability
  • Equitable inclusion and local community context in multi-site research
  • Developing and sustaining tribal IRB Infrastructure
  • Approaches to improving IRB submissions for a better review process
  • The evolution of ethics and compliance in IACUC and IRB oversight
