Title: Beyond the IRB: Who is Responsible for Ethical Research?

In the United States, responsibility for ethical treatment of review subjects is ensured by the federally mandated Institutional Review Board structure. However, ethical research requires ethical commitments beyond the narrow definition of 45 CFR 46 (the law describing Institutional Review Boards). We will examine three case studies in order to better understand the implications of research ethics being solely defined by the Institutional Review Board process, and will discuss the role that researchers play in ethical research.

Face-to-face participants meet in Bell Hall 013
