Webinar: Who's Around the IRB Table? Considering Diversity, Expertise, and Lay Perspectives

When:  Jul 19, 2022 from 13:00 to 14:15 (ET)
Who's Around the IRB Table? Considering Diversity, Expertise, and Lay Perspectives in IRB Decision-making

IRBs are deliberative bodies charged with protecting research subjects while promoting ethical research. While IRBs are designed to include different perspectives, it is important to consider who is absent from the table.

During this webinar, panelists from the Consortium to Advance Effective Research Ethics Oversight (www.aereo.org) will discuss several recent empirical studies, including work related to the diversity of IRB membership at universities and academic medical centers, the incorporation of outside expertise into IRB deliberation, and the unique role of non-scientific IRB members.

This webinar will be in meeting format, so attendees will have the opportunity to interact directly with the speakers. Time will also be devoted to answering attendee questions.
