Research Privacy: Why IRB Reviews Aren’t Always Sufficient

Thursday, May 05 | 8:00AM–8:45AM ET | Harborside Ballroom D, 4th Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session

In this session, we will discuss the IRB’s role in reviewing research protocols for privacy. Many researchers mistakenly believe that once they have IRB approval their protocol has been reviewed for all compliance matters. However, most IRBs do not conduct in-depth reviews for privacy or security compliance or data ethics. In this session, we will talk about the gaps between IRB reviews and privacy and talk about some potential solutions.
