Responsible Conduct of Research discussion to be Held in St. Paul
The College of Education and Human Development will hold a training event for the CEHD community, Responsible Conduct of Research in CEHD: Working with and Protecting Vulnerable Populations on Thursday, October 29. The event will take place in the Vo-Tech Education Building on the St. Paul campus. Presenters will be Cynthia McGill and Jeffrey Perkey of the Research Subjects Protection Program and Jeff Edleson of the School of Social Work.
This continued awareness/discussion event will cover several aspects related to responsible research, specifically working with and protecting human subjects. Issues discussed will directly relate the research enterprise within CEHD. The format will use minimal PowerPoint slides along with a discussion of scenarios.
Topics will include: a brief refresher on IRB procedures; what it means if a project is "exempt," (which describes many CEHD research projects); IRB responsibilities for PIs and students; responsibilities when working with children, seniors and vulnerable populations; and responsibilities and challenges when working with international sponsors and study participants
