VCU Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) Blog

The VCU HRPP is dedicated to facilitating ethically and scientifically sound research through robust review of research projects and through effective education and outreach to the VCU research community.

As you may be aware, the Virginia IRB Consortium holds an annual regional conference each year in the fall. This year it will be held virtually on Friday, October 28, 2022 from 8:30am-2:00pm. There is no fee to attend.

This year’s conference sounds very interesting, with a keynote by the eldest grandson of Henrietta Lacks. There will also be break-out sessions focusing on topics such as remote and electronic consent, requests for secondary use of data when the original consent and protocol did not address future use, single IRB, and post-approval monitoring.

The complete agenda, including additional sessions, will be available soon and automatically sent to those who have registered. 

All members of the research community are welcome to attend. Those who are interested in attending any or all of the upcoming conference should complete the Zoom registration at:
