“When SBER Involves Drugs and Devices: Cases to Clarify FDA Oversight”
(Recorded September 20, 2018)
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2018
Time: 11:00 a.m. -12:30 P.m.
Location: ED II G104A/B

Description: Increasingly, social, behavioral, and educational research (SBER) incorporates techniques and devices that are more traditionally found in biomedical research, creating challenges for IRBs in determining whether a study falls under US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversight. The FDA’s authority includes drugs, biologics, and medical devices. FDA oversight may also extend to mobile medical applications and other innovations, which can create challenging regulatory questions as to whether a study falls under FDA jurisdiction.

Objectives:
• Define some key FDA regulatory concepts and recognize their potential application to SBER
• Determine whether an SBER protocol involves FDA-regulated drugs or devices
• Apply appropriate IRB review levels to studies with FDA-regulated drugs or devices

PRIM&R Webinar: “Responsible Conduct of Research: What IRBs Need to Know”
Date: Thursday, October 25, 2018
Time: 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Location: ED 2 G137

Description: Integrity and the proper conduct of research are essential for the advancement of science and to maintain continued public trust in the research enterprise. While the US federal mandates concerning the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) primarily require institutions to provide training in specific topic areas, the movement to enhance integrity in research has grown worldwide. RCR principles are broad and provide scientists and scholars from every discipline with a framework of professional responsibilities. Many IRB professionals and members may not realize that “protection of human subjects” is one of the core RCR topics. What should you, as an IRB professional or IRB member, know about RCR, and how can you recognize and manage RCR issues to enhance and promote ethical research?

Topics
• An overview of RCR, including the core topic areas (scientists as responsible citizens, mentor/mentee relationships, authorship, conflicts of interest, collaborative research issues, data management, use of vertebrate animals and human subjects, peer review, and misconduct); and emerging research integrity issues, such as reproducibility and the effects of institutional culture
• The importance of RCR on a global and local level, including key principles from various international and institutional research codes of conduct, the difference between compliance and integrity, and the relationship between ethics and high-quality research
• An examination of cases in human subjects research that have RCR implications
• Tips for IRBs on how to spot RCR issues during review of noncompliance, the research record, and amendments; and tips on coordination and collaboration with other institutional bodies and staff around issues of ethics and integrity
