IRB Seminar Series

The NYU IRB continues its seminar series on the responsibilities of researchers, faculty sponsors and NYU for the protection of human subjects research. The seminars are open to anyone with interest in research involving human subjects and should be of special interest to current and future human subjects researchers. Issues discussed at these seminars are relevant to all NYU Faculty, students, and administrators that are involved in the research process.

Please register for individual seminars by sending an e-mail to irbtraining@nyu.edu. Include the date and title of the seminar you wish to attend in the subject line of your e-mail.

Seminars will be held at NYU’s Office of Sponsored Programs Conference Room, 665 Broadway, Suite 801. Seminars will begin promptly at noon.

Please note: If less than four (4) people register for a seminar, that session will be cancelled. Should this happen, we will notify the registrants only.
