ICPSR webinar on navigating your IRB to share research data is Nov. 28

Researchers are welcome to view a ICPSR webinar on sharing research data with the IRB from 1 to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, in the Chester Fritz Library, room 108.

Researchers wishing to share data often have concerns about how to apply to an Institution Review Board (IRB) for permission to share data. Older data collections may not have been designed with an intent to share the data. Planning new data collection activities with IRB oversight can be difficult given disclosure risks inherent in complex study designs and researcher demands for identifying data.

These issues are particularly salient in the field of substance abuse research. This webinar will provide guidelines for working with your IRB to maximize data sharing. It will be presented by Amy Pienta and Kaye Marz of the National Addiction and HIV Data Archive Program at the University of Michigan.
