2020 IRB VIRTUAL CONFERENCE - July 30, 2020

Join NWABR and its conference partners, the WIRB-Copernicus Group IRB and Advarra as we host our annual IRB Conference on July 30, 2020.  We will feature presentations by the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) as in years past. 

CoronaVirus Impact on IRB Conference

Due to the popularity of this conference, and the unknown risk of us all meeting in the same space, we have elected to host this conference virtually. This allows us to fully participate and to open the conference to people outside our geographic region at a lower cost.  NWABR has reconfirmed the intention of all faculty to participate. 

Attendees will be able to view all presentations live and those presentations will also be recorded for offline viewing by registered attendees.  This service will be offered through the GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar platforms.

CE providers have confirmed that credits can still be given for such a virtual conference!
