- To assure the rights and well-being of human subjects participating in research are protected
- To educate researchers about how to improve study conduct
- To provide resources to the Research Community
OHSP's Division of Research Education & Training hosts a seminar series titled, "University of Rochester Human Research Protection Program (UR-HRPP) Educational Forum". Seminars are routinely held at least once a month during the academic year and are open to all faculty and staff (content is not necessarily limited to 'clinical' research; seminars are often targeted at human subject research in general).
The purpose of the series is to educate study team members in: 1) the protection of human subjects involved in research; 2) responsible conduct of research; 3) Good Clinical Practices (GCP) standards and; 4) current events, trends and hot topics in human subject research.
All seminars are announced via the OHSP email distribution list and Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit is typically available for those attending in-person.
Materials from previously held seminars, including copies of presentation slides and video recordings of each presentation (as applicable), are available for review in Blackboard (see directory of materials maintained in Blackboard posted below). To access materials, faculty, staff and students must self-enroll in the 'OHSP Seminar Materials' course in Blackboard (instructions posted below).
