REMINDER: Conflict of Interest Seminar TODAY

Dealing with Conflict of Interest in a Growing Research Environment: Time for a fresh look

 Friday March 1st | 11:00-12:00
Milken Institute SPH | 5th Floor Conference Room

Conflict of interest (COI) in research continues to be a hot topic of discussion
with much of the attention stemming from its negative impacts on research.
Consequently, a significant proportion of investigators do not feel
comfortable discussing their conflicting interests, while institutions have not
contributed towards building an environment which makes it easy for COI to
be openly discussed and managed adequately.

Dr. Paul Ndebele, Research Regulatory Specialist at ORE will discuss the
structures and procedures for handling COIs within GW and some of the
challenges associated. This seminar will also propose new ways of looking at
COI within a growing research environment including suggestions on the
development of robust COI management plans. Seminar is intended for
researchers, research leaders, and research administrators.
Light refreshments will be served.

Research Innovation Awards (formerly known as Pilot Funds Award)

Do you need to collect preliminary date for your larger study? Do you have a very innovative idea you want to test in the real world? Do you want to start a new line of innovative Research?
ORE is happy to announce the GWSPH Research Innovation Awards (formerly known as Pilot Funds Awards). These awards aim to encourage innovation and creativity in public health research, and support research initiatives aimed at eventually generating sustainable extramural gran funding. Funding is available for one or two years, up to $25,000 per year.
Priority will be give to applications that serve one of the following areas:
  • Collection and analysis of pilot data to improve reviewed extramural grant applications;
  • Fostering research innovation that can attract future funding;
  • Promising initiatives responsive to an active funding announcement; and
  • Research projects by new investigators.
Applications are due February 20th. Click here for more information and details how to apply.

Seminar Tomorrow: 10-Step Approach for Handling Incidents of Research Non-Compliance

December 5th |1:15-2:15

Milken Institute SPH| 4th Floor Conference Room 

While investigators and their research teams put lots of effort in ensuring research compliance, incidents of non-compliance do occur. Regulations and policies require that incidents of non-compliance be reported to IRBs, sponsors and other relevant authorities. It is common for investigators to enter into panic mode when they come face to face with non-compliance incidents. This seminar aims to equip investigators and study coordinators with the necessary skills for handling of non-compliance incidents using a systematic approach. The use of the 10-step approach, will ensure that non-compliance reports that are submitted to the IRBs and sponsors are thorough and exceed expectations.

Drawing heavily from Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines as well as his vast experience with IRBs, Paul Ndebele PhD, Senior Research Regulatory Specialist of the Office of Research Excellence will use cases to share with participants how non-compliance incidents can be managed and used as a starting point in improving research quality. The seminar will be relevant to anyone playing a leadership role in any research project involving human subjects including investigators and study coordinators. Light refreshments will be provided. Advanced registration is required.
