Subject: IRB Educational Sessions- Fall Schedule


The CUMC IRB is pleased to announce our Fall Schedule for Educational Sessions:


Monthly Investigator Meetings:

These sessions will be held once a month to help ensure that all human subjects research is conducted in accordance with the federal regulations, in an ethical manner, and with high standards of excellence.  We also aim to form a network among researchers and the IRB for the purposes of facilitating human research.  Topics will be forthcoming, but please save the following dates for these important sessions:

Thursday, November 17th

Thursday, December 15th


All Monthly Investigator Meetings will be held from 3:30-4:30 in the Alumni Auditorium Black Building 1st Floor (650 W. 168th St.). 

IRB 101

The intent of this session is to provide basic information about the history of human subjects protection, regulatory requirements, submission tips, and RASCAL updates as they relate to the Human Research Protection Program at Columbia and the Medical Center.  Research personnel who have not attended the IRB 101 series in the past, individuals new to the research environment, research personnel new to Columbia, and all those who wish to gain a historical perspective and learn the ethical and regulatory guidelines for Human Subjects Research are encouraged to attend.


Tuesday, September 27, 2011

10:00-2:00 in Amphitheater 1 - P&S 1st Floor (630 W. 168 Street)

Beverages and a light lunch will be provided.  Please RSVP so that we can plan accordingly.





RASCAL Submissions Workshops

These sessions are intended to focus on both the technical aspects and required content for different types of RASCAL submissions ranging from the creation of consent forms to the submission of specific types of events.  These workshops will be hands on, held in the computer lab in Hammer 202A, and researchers are encouraged to bring their own current submissions to work on during the session.  Topics will be rotated every two weeks through the end of the year.  Space is limited because of the nature of these workshops please RSVP before attending.
