This year, the Compliance Officer, Hila Berger along with IRB Coordinator, Amy Krenzer and IRB Chair, Katrina Bulkley represented Montclair State University at the 2013 PRIM&R Advancing Ethical Research (AER) Conference. The conference took place in Boston, Massachusetts from November 7-9 and included sessions with topics such as informed consent, research with children and unique regulatory requirements for ethical review of research.
Ms. Berger and Ms. Krenzer did a collaborative poster on the “Ethical Challenges and Solutions Involved in Reviewing a Protocol with Sex Offenders as Participants.” Their poster was chosen as one of the top posters invited to a Special Innovative Speaker series. Ms. Berger was a presenter at an Innovations Panel “Innovations in Research on Controversial Topics”, in which she elaborated on identifying the concerns and solutions for protecting a highly controversial population. The talk provided attendees with the unique challenges and solutions for approving research with a risky participant group.
By attending and representing MSU at the 2013 PRIM&R Advancing Ethical Research (AER) Conference in Boston, Hila Berger, Amy Krenzer and Katrina Bulkley were able to enhance their knowledge base on balanced, well-researched and accurate information on a range of ethical and regulatory issues affecting research.
