SMaRT Connects: Successful Strategies for Working with the IRB
January 16 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
SMaRT Connects, a resource of the Staffing, Mentorship and Research Training (SMaRT) Program, will hold a session on “Successful Strategies for Working with the IRB.”
The SMaRT Connects series supports human subjects research professionals through timely College of Medicine research process information, professional development and networking. At each session, attendees will learn the latest tips, techniques, policies and procedures from subject matter experts who facilitate discussion, answer questions and provide guidance.
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) protects the rights and welfare of human subjects involved in research at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Penn State College of Medicine. At this event, Courtney Karmelita will discuss ways to avoid the most common errors in IRB submissions and practices. She will explain IRB submission components and how to use the most common submission templates.
The SMaRT Program facilitates the navigation of College of Medicine resources for researchers and research support staff. The program team is available to work with investigators and staff at each stage of the research process, creating alignment with necessary skills and resources when they are most needed. The program is available to all levels of research support faculty and staff at the College of Medicine. It offers tailored orientation to investigator-initiated research, pre- and post-award consultation services, and navigation to institutional resources applicable to all stages of the research process. It is administered by Penn State Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
