Just Released!  New Report on Ensuring Community-Level Research Protections

CCPH is delighted to announce our newest publication, Ensuring Community-Level Research Protections, based on the recent six-part educational conference call series on Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) and Human Research Ethics co-sponsored in partnership with the Tuskegee University National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care.

¨       Overview and presentation summaries for each of the six educational conference calls

¨       First-person stories from diverse communities and community-campus partnerships tackling ethical issues in research

¨       What you can do as a community member, IRB administrator/chair/member, or researcher
