The Research Community Forum Workshop (RCF-W) on April 6th, 2016 provides an opportunity for the research community to get up-close with federal staff from OHRP to explore important aspects of human research protections. The workshop will combine didactic instruction and "hands-on" exercises to explore the regulations, HHS policies, and how to apply them.
The Research Community Forum (RCF) on April 7th, 2016 will cover a variety of topics through a key note speaker and three breakout tracks. Additionally, representatives of OHRP will be onsite to answer questions, explain the HHS regulatory requirements, and provide news and policy updates about the Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM).
