Judy Birk (Managing Director, IRB Health Sciences and Behavioral Sciences), Lynette Hoelter (Director, Instructional Resources & Development, ICPSR), Lisa Neidert (Senior Research Associate, PSC)

02/01/2010, at noon in room 6050 ISR-Thompson.

In this presentation on research ethics, Judy Birk will cover “IRB Compliance and Non-Compliance”: Navigating the intricacies of human subjects regulations involves a partnership with the IRB. This presentation will describe the foundations for working with the IRB to develop a compliant research protocol and how to avoid the common pitfalls.
Lynette Hoelter will speak about “Tensions Between Rich Research Data and Human Subjects Protection”: This presentation will include a discussion of the trade-offs (and costs) inherent in the recent practice of matching geographical, biological, and even qualitative interview data to traditional survey results. Each part of the process – collection, data management, dissemination, analysis, and reporting results – implies a set of responsibilities to researchers and human subjects. Examples of ICPSR’s research on disclosure risks, disclosure risk reviews of data, and current best practices will be included.
Lisa Neidert will look at “Restricted Data Contracts: Conditions, Conditions, and More Conditions”: This presentation will provide an overview of the restricted data infrastructure at the Population Studies Center. Most of the discussion will describe compliance issues, particularly those that involve researcher behavior. We will also touch on changes in access to restricted data – ranging automated contracting systems, to more embedded security in the computing environment, to universal contracts.
