SACHRP to Discuss Public Health Surveillance, Research Risks to Non-Subjects
The Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Human Research Protections (SACHRP) will take on two new topics at its meeting later this month, as well as possibly finalize previously discussed recommendations on several topics, including research involving donor organs from deceased individuals. Although planned as an in-person meeting, SACHRP will meet virtually July 22-23 because of COVID-19; the meeting will be webcast. According to a notice in the July 6 Federal Register, SACHRP will first discuss recommendations for NIH regarding its draft data management and sharing policy, and then review recommendations on deceased organ intervention research. “The remainder of the meeting will be devoted to a new topic, the interpretation of Public Health Surveillance…as well as consideration of a second new topic, Risks to Non-subjects in Human Subjects Research,” the notice states. When available, the full agenda and links to watch the webcast will be available at http://www.dhhs.gov/ohrp/sachrp-committee/meetings/index.html.
