The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) co-hosts with

The Office of Extramural Research (OER) at the National Institutes of Health

A one-day pre-seminar workshop

“Getting through Human Research Reviews with Skill”

On Wednesday October 14, 2015

At the 2015 NIH Regional Seminar, Hilton San Diego Bayfront in San Diego, California

This workshop aims to provide participants with the skill and knowledge necessary to have their NIH grant applications and research protocols pass reviews for human research protections. It will focus on clarifying confusions and providing participants with practical tips and solutions to problems and difficulty commonly encountered during such reviews.

 REGISTER NOW at if you answer YES to any of the following questions:

  • Do you feel quite baffled by the different requirements on human research protections and wondered how you could get ahead of the process?
  • Are you sometimes confused when a research using data collected from human participants is considered ‘human subjects research’ and when it is not?
  • Have you ever felt frustrated with being told that you had not included adequate protections for human participants, when you had already spent hours working on the proposal?
