What Past Participants Are Saying

All research administrators should attend this workshop.

Great overview on pertinent topics within research ethics and IRB approval that are applicable to clinical researchers.

Clear information. Precise presentation. Good balance of history and context with policies.

Great slides! The presenters were very knowledgeable.

Even though I have been able to attend multiple annual PRIM&R meetings and have served on the IRB for many years, the information presented was incisive, current, and comprehensive and further clarified existing knowledge.
