Please note: this seminar is for internal U-M faculty & staff.

Projects involving health and biology data, including genetic and genomic data, with data on individual behaviors, environmental factors, and the use of mHealth technologies have their unique challenges. This seminar will help you identify the ethical considerations involved in clinical research combined with biobehavioral elements.

Distinguished University of Michigan researchers Melvin McInnis, M.D., FRCPsych and Sachin Kheterpal, M.D., MBA, will discuss their research. Nicole Eyrich, MPH, who works on projects that involve mHealth technologies as a clinical research project manager, will describe considerations for the eResearch application. Beverly Yashar, a clinical professor of human genetics and IRBMED board member, will present bioethical implications of genetic and genomic data collection. Katy Hunsche, an IRBMED senior associate regulatory analyst, will address additional details for working with IRBMED on these types of projects.

A recording will be available on-demand for 30 days after the webinar (registration required). Questions: rayn@med.umich.edu
