Campus Invited to UC Teleconference on 8/26/2011: DHHS Advanced Notice of Proposed Rule Making on Human Subject Protections

The Department of Health and Human Services has issued an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rule Making (ANPRM) as the first step in revising the Common Rule (45 CFR 46), the code of federal regulations governing research with human subjects. These changes could greatly impact the IRB review process and requirements.

You are invited to help develop UC’s institutional comments on the ANPRM via several organized teleconference calls. The first of two upcoming one-hour teleconference calls is scheduled for this Friday, August 26 at 3PM and is open to the general UC research community. The discussion will focus on the proposed changes to the regulations pertaining to informed consent. In order to collect input and focus the discussion, a survey has been created with the Advanced Notice questions pertaining to consent.

Log-in information is as follows:
