Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program Invites Participation in Meetings on Federal Policy for Human Subjects in Research

On Sept. 8, 2015, federal agencies including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects, which was promulgated as a Common Rule in 1991. This NPRM seeks comment on proposals to better protect human subjects involved in research, while facilitating valuable research and reducing burden, delay, and ambiguity for investigators.

Representatives from the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program and patient advocacy groups are collaborating to host four national one-day meetings. The CTSA Program is supported through the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences at the National Institutes of Health.

The goals of these meetings are to:

  • Enhance understanding of the NPRM
  • Facilitate a robust exchange of ideas among a broad range of research stakeholders about the proposed changes and their implications
  • Promote informed public engagement in the policy making process

We invite you to join us at one or more of the following scheduled meetings, please see links below:
