on responsibilities of researchers, Institutional Review Boards

(IRBs), and institutional officials for the protection of human

subjects in research.  The workshops are open to everyone with an

interest in research involving human subjects.  The meetings should

be of special interest to those persons currently serving or about to

begin serving as a member of an IRB.  Issues discussed at these

workshops are relevant to all other Public Health Service agencies.

Legal and Ethical Perspectives

DESCRIPTION:  This conference will explore the legal and ethical

perspectives of social and biomedical research.  Protecting the

individual rights of human research subjects is of prime concern, but

so is protecting the rights of communities of individuals.  This is

especially true for indigenous peoples.  The conference is designed

to be of interest to social and biomedical researchers, IRB members,

students, agency personnel, indigenous peoples, and others interested

in the rights of individuals and communitites.  Opportunities for

informal discussion and exchange will supplement the panel and

breakout group format.  Reports from the simultaneous group sessions

will be made.
