Annual Research Ethics Conference - Major Changes in Research Rules & Oversight: Making Progress or Creating New Problems?

With technology and medical understanding ever growing, so are questions and concerns regarding research ethics and governing rules. To address these growing questions, leaders from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Harvard University, and the University of Minnesota will be discussing a wide range of topics at this year's annual research ethics conference.

Dean Jakub Tolar, MD, PhD, will be moderating a discussion on, "Changing Oversight of Emerging Technology – Challenges for Researchers, Institutional Biosafety Committees (IBCs), and the Community." Valuable for researchers, clinicians, students, and others, Dean Tolar will examine how oversight may change with new growing technologies and procedures.

In addition to Dean Tolar, other University of Minnesota Medical School faculty members, including Drs. Michelle Biros, Douglas Yee, John E. Wagner Jr., and Susan Wolf will be speaking.
