IRB and the Common Read 2012

IRB and the Common Read 2012

THANK YOU!!! As of February, 2013 we have achieved our goal of increasing PEERRS certification in Human Subjects Protection!

The University of Michigan-Flint has selected The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks for the 2012 Common Read.  The Institutional Review Board (IRB) applauds this choice because of the focus on research ethics.  Our responsibility, as the IRB, is to  review and approve research projects in order to protect the safety and dignity of human subjects.  Ethical conduct of research is the primary focus of our work.

Challenge Goal: PEERRS Certification in Human Subjects Protection

We challenge YOU, in association with the Common Read program to learn more about research ethics and human subjects protection by becoming PEERRS certified in Human Subjects Protection, with a goal of increasing by 20% the number of certified individuals from the Flint Campus by May 2013.  Help us reach our goal!  Get certified NOW: go to the PEERRS site:
