Workshops and Speaking Invitations
OHRP welcomes opportunities to provide educational workshops on human research protections at conferences and meetings sponsored by institutions, professional organizations, advocacy groups, and the federal government. OHRP will assist with designing the workshop and will provide staff for the presentations. In addition, OHRP staff accepts a limited number of speaking requests at meetings and conferences. As the use of videoconferencing becomes more popular, this will facilitate OHRP staff’s participation in these events.
Please send all speaking invitations and workshop requests to OHRP-Edu@hhs.gov
The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) and
the Texas A&M University System will co-host

AND EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH”
Tuesday, March 1, 2016
8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Annenberg Presidential Conference Center, College Station, TX
This full-day workshop will include sessions covering contemporary challenges in social, behavioral, and educational research (SBER), and the basics of the Federal Regulations on Human Subjects Protections with a focus on SBER examples. These sessions provide important information for early-stage investigators and can serve as a refresher for IRB reviewers and professionals. Additional sessions will cover advanced topics including review and analysis of sample SBER protocols, challenges in assessing risk to participants in SBER, and the recent Common Rule Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) and what it might mean for the SBER community.
Presentations will be interactive and there will be plenty of opportunities to interact with OHRP staff.
This workshop meets the criteria for Certified IRB Professional (CIP) recertification guidelines for a maximum of 4.5 hours of accredited continuing education credits.
