Luminaries Lecture Series
OHRP offers a series of lectures by esteemed individuals with thought-provoking insights on human subjects research protections. Many of these lectures are recordings of keynote addresses at OHRP-sponsored Research Community Forum (RCF) events that take place approximately three times a year at locations across the United States. These presentations are informative and serve as a helpful resource to all professionals that conduct human subjects research or strive to protect the individuals that volunteer to participate in research.
The opinions expressed in the videos are those of the speakers. They do not necessarily reflect the views of the Office for Human Research Protections or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
These videos are also listed on the OHRP YouTube Playlist.
Available recordings include:
