Overview

What drives disruption for Institutional Review Boards (IRBs)? Will the line between clinical care and research continue to blur? What happens when the NIH Single IRB of Record model starts in September 2017? Will mHealth technologies continue to push the boundaries of IRB review? Will the 21st Century Cures Act speed up the pace of research?

The 2017 NWABR IRB Conference gives you a roadmap to stay ahead of disruption in ethics review. Join thought leaders from across the country and regulators from the FDA and OHRP for a day of education and networking in Seattle. Attendees will experience an accelerated program for IRB members and staff, researchers, and study sponsors. Topics will address regulations, policies, mHealth technologies, research during crisis situations, and more.
