The MRCT Center has worked with stakeholders to develop case studies that show (1) different ways to get started returning individual research results, (2) how common roadblocks in the IRR process have been overcome, and (3) how thoughtful planning early on has enabled success with IRR.

On May 2, 2023, the MRCT Center presented a webinar about these case studies, “Returning Individual Research Results and Data to Participants: Experience from the Field.” To watch this webinar and see related resources, click here.
Given the interest and questions that the May webinar generated, we offered a 3-part summer webinar series about the specific ethical, operational, and technical challenges to returning individual research results and data to participants.
The Digging Deeper series explored Pfizer’s Participant Data Return Solution, IRB/HRPP Responsibilities, and Returning Genetic/Genomic Secondary Findings. To view resources from these webinars, click here.
This case study shares an example of how one institution created an educational tool to support decision-making for potential participants in a genetic testing study.
