The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Food and Drug

Administration (FDA) are continuing to sponsor a series of workshops

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 persons and those 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.  The current schedule includes:

TITLE:  Basic Training Session - Research Benefits and Risks to

Individuals and Communities:  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 communities.  Opportunities for

informal discussion and exchange will supplement the panel and

breakout group format.  Reports from the simultaneous group sessions

will be made.

Participants will learn how regulations and community participation

can protect human subjects in research, explore the notion of

protecting communities from research risks, examine the impact of

recent court rulings on research risks, interact with others

interested in research risk issues, and make recommendations to

agency and other personnel.
