For 40 years, PRIM&R has hosted educational events where professionals gather to deconstruct, discuss, and debate issues affecting the world of research ethics and oversight and to network with colleagues in the field.
The 2014 Advancing Ethical Research (AER) Conference will bring together more than 2,200 professionals from public and private institutions, the federal government, industry, and academia.
Always an irreplaceable learning and networking opportunity, this dynamic conference includes educational offerings for professionals involved in every facet of the research enterprise. Through engaging and informative keynote addresses, a series of thought-provoking panels on timely ethical issues, and highly practical breakout sessions , attendees will gain important insights on the fields of research ethics and human subject protections, increase their knowledge and understanding of ethical requirements, learn best practices and strategies for their implementation, and sharpen their skills for dealing with myriad of late-breaking and longstanding challenges. This meeting will also feature a poster gallery composed of novel approaches to the management, function, and operations of HRPPs/IRBs and empirical studies or conceptual analysis of challenging issues related to the conduct or oversight of research involving human subjects.

PRIM&R’s highest priority is providing professionals responsible for ensuring research protections, and those involved in the design and implementation of research protocols, with education, practical tools, and cutting-edge strategies. Hosting highly acclaimed conferences and short courses on the ethics, regulation, and administration of research are some of the ways PRIM&R has achieved this goal.
