2006 National Conference on Alternative IRB Models: Optimizing Human Subject Protections, November 19-21, 2006

Click here for a copy of the agenda and workshop summary report.

This two-day conference is intended to enhance the protection of human subjects of research by exploring the use of innovative IRB models as alternatives to local IRBs under appropriate circumstances. The goals are:

  1. to optimize and facilitate institutions' access to appropriate ethical and scientific expertise for reviewing increasingly sophisticated projects, and
  2. to optimize institutions' resources to review such projects.

The conference is sponsored by the Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA); it is co-sponsored by the Association of American Universities (AAU), the Council on Government Relations (COGR), the Consortium of Social Science Associations (COSSA), the Department of Defense (DoD), the National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA), and Public Responsibility in Medicine and Research (PRIM&R).
