OHRP, U. of Michigan Forum Next Month to Address DMS Policy, AI in Research
The HHS Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) and the University of Michigan are cosponsoring OHRP’s annual community research forum, a two-day conference, Sept. 26-27, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Topics include how NIH’s data management and sharing (DMS) policy affects institutional review boards (IRBs) and human research protection programs, as well as “institutional approaches for operationalizing and ensuring compliance with this policy while supporting…researchers.”
Also on the agenda is a discussion of “emerging artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and the ways that these technologies may be implemented in the context of human subjects research. Attendees will also explore how to evaluate the ethics of using AI technologies through contextual integrity to better guide regulatory oversight of these studies,” according to the meeting announcement. Other sessions will address community collaborations “from the perspective of a researcher and a community representative” and how community ethics review boards and IRBs can work together.
