All webinars are one hour and begin at 12:00 p.m. Central Time.

Part Three: OHRP Regulatory Interpretations That You Need To Know, But Have Never Been Told
The Health and Human Services (HHS) human subjects regulations aren't always clear-cut and often times Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) and researchers struggle with how to interpret them. During this webinar, the presenters will share the knowledge Huron has gained through communications with Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) about topics such as:
- How to handle "protocol exceptions for a single subject"
- When an unanticipated problem involving risks to subjects or others does not have to be reported to OHRP
- Whether the IRB has to require the submission of the names of all study staff on a research study
- When Subpart C does not apply to a subject who becomes incarcerated

Part Four: Regulatory Considerations for Biorepositories: Navigating HHS, FDA, HIPAA and Informed Consent
Biorepositories continue to face regulatory challenges including patient privacy/HIPAA considerations, applicability of federal regulations, and when and how to obtain informed consent. In this webinar, topics addressed will include:
- When HHS, FDA and HIPAA regulations apply
- When informed consent is not required
- Pros and cons of different informed consent approaches
