Compliance Issues in the Social and Behavioral Sciences
Google Calendar
Content Level: Intermediate
This session focuses on two compliance issues as they affect faculty in the Social Science and Humanities disciplines. Social Science research methodologies can be vastly different than bio-medical research. When research involves human subjects, the research administrator needs to be able to advise faculty correctly regarding protocol submission, informed consent, and other factors based upon the research methodologies they plan to use. The second compliance area is export controls. With the increased emphasis on international collaborations, faculty face export control concerns in the conduct of disseminating scholarship and mentoring and advising students. Research administrators should be able to spot potential concerns to promote a more proactive approach to their management.
Learning Objectives:
1. Explain to their faculty the differences between exempt, expedited and full IRB review and direct faculty to appropriate sources for assistance.
2. Recognize potential export control issues and suggest ways to modify activities to address the concern.
Prerequisites: None
Speaker: Deborah Marshall, CRA, Executive Director for Research Administration, University of Pennsylvania
