Presented at: MRCT Center webinar and public launch, “Supporting IRB Efforts to Advance Diversity and Inclusion in Clinical Research”
Does the IRB play a role in addressing the problem of diversity, inclusion, and equity in clinical research? It is true that the need for change must be systemic and embraced at all levels of the clinical research enterprise, and while IRBs are not the primary driver for assuring diversity, inclusion, and equity in clinical research, IRBs can and should serve as a checkpoint for reviewing research for the principles of DEI. This webinar introduced tools and resources created for IRBs and HRPPs to help drive the change.
