Professional Series - Mentor and Mentee Responsibilities and Relationships | RL 3.204 | February 21st, 2018, 10:00 AM | Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Series

The Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Professional Series is a blended learning, multi-session series designed to engage the UT Dallas research community in contemporary issues in research ethics and scientific integrity. Workshops will provide instruction commensurate with grant funding requirements for the NIH and NSF.

In order to earn an RCR Professional Series certification, students, postdocs and staff, must complete the RCR Foundations Training and RCR Development Series plus two elective seminars. Elective seminars are presented by prominent University researchers in their fields of expertise.

Elective seminars will feature a variety of topics such as:

• Research Ethics - Avoiding the Pitfalls of Research Misconduct

• Mentor and Mentee Responsibilities and Relationships

• Human Subjects in Research

• Data Management and Ownership

Registration is required for attendance and seating is limited. Lite refreshments will be served.

IRB Training Session: Participants With Special Needs | MC 2.404 | February 28th, 2018, 10:00 AM | IRB Protocol Assistance Workshops

Research protocols are carefully designed to ensure a participant’s needs are met, however, often ignore the special needs population.  In this presentation, a representative from Student AccessAbility will talk about special considerations needed when working with participants who have a sensory impairment (vision, hearing) or other disabilities.      

IRB Training Session: Panel for Research with Minors | MC 2.404 | April 11th, 2018, 10:00 AM | IRB Protocol Assistance Workshops

When conducting research with children, there are some additional considerations for recruitment, obtaining appropriate consent / assent, and the conduct of study procedures. There are also specific regulatory requirements and institutional policies. In this panel presentation, three experienced UTD researchers will share their perspectives and suggestions for effectively working with minor participants in research.

IRB Training Session: IRB Update | MC 2.404 | February 14th, 2018, 10:00 AM | IRB Protocol Assistance Workshops

This session will focus on upcoming changes in IRB processes and procedures including training requirements and protocol submission portals.  We’ll also discuss the NIH’s recent change in defining “Clinical Trials” and how this affects research studies at UTD.

IRB Training Session: Consent Language and a Participant’s Perspective | MC 2.404 | March 21st, 2018, 10:00 AM | IRB Protocol Assistance Workshops

Researchers should do their best to confirm participants are well-informed about the purpose, procedures, and what is required of them when enrolling in a research study. In order to anticipate the needs of research participants during the informed consent process, Investigators need to be able to step back and look at the study from a participant’s point of view. Join us in discussing:

  • Consent documents and procedures
  • The “reasonable person”  standard
  • Effectively communicating information about a research study

IRB Training Session: Best Practices For Success - A Research Coordinator's Perspective | MC 2.404 | March 28th, 2018, 10:00 AM | IRB Protocol Assistance Workshops

Federal regulations, UTD policy, Institutional Review Board requirements…oh my!  If the responsibility of compliance and thought of an IRB post-monitoring review makes your head spin, this presentation is for you.  Speakers (two current research coordinators from the Center of Vital Longevity) will share their perspectives and suggestions for day to day operations of a busy lab and effectively organizing data, documenting participant payment records, managing IRB related paperwork (informed consent documents, IRB paperwork, etc.) to ensure their protocols are in compliance with federal regulations and institutional policy.
