Faculty Workshop: Human Subjects in Research

Dear Faculty,

As part of its mission to expand grants and research education opportunities for faculty, the Office of Research and Creative Scholarship is pleased to offer a “Lunch n’ Learn” workshop on the basics of human subjects research on Thursday, December 5, 12:00-1:30 pm. Space is limited to 10 participants, and lunch will be served. 

This 90-minute workshop will explore human subjects research at Emerson College, and the role of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) in reviewing, approving, and monitoring research projects involving human subjects. Topics to be covered include:

  • Defining and classifying human subjects research
  • Types of HS research conducted at Emerson
  • Federal regulations and the “Common Rule”
  • A brief history and overview of the IRB
  • Is my project “human subjects research”?

Additionally, the co-chairs of the IRB, Eiki Satake and Roxana Mariscou-Murphy, will be on hand to answer any questions. 

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP by Monday, December 2. Please also let us know at that time if you have any dietary restrictions. The workshop will be held in the Owens Multipurpose Room at 172 Tremont Street.

This workshop is part of ORCS’s Lunch n’ Learn series, which will be held intermittently throughout the academic year. If you have any topics that you would like to see covered in a future session, please feel free to email us with suggestions.


Best regards,
Eric Asetta
