  • Neurotechnology Takes Human Research Ethics to New Frontiers
    • Abstract: It is possible that any IRB might someday review a study that involves making healthy people smarter, cognitively faster, and more resilient mentally. Neurotechnology, including research funded by the government, also is designed to help people with Parkinson’s disease, locked-in syndrome, mental illness, and other issues. But it could take things a step further for people with no chronic conditions. This potential raises ethical questions.

  • COVID-19 Pandemic Changed Informed Consent for Biobanking
    • Abstract: Researchers have used the 2018 public health surveillance exception to the Common Rule for the first time during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the early weeks of the pandemic, researchers might have overused this exception. Federal agencies approved some protocols involving lines of genetic materials with explicit research purposes, even if these were secondary to the public health surveillance purpose.

  • Tips to Improve IRB-Researcher Productivity and Relationship
    • Abstract: Expectations and communication issues are the two biggest challenges between principal investigators and the IRB community. IRBs set expectations through their websites and response letters, but they might not have articulated those expectations to themselves and investigators. From the principal investigator perspective, researchers might not fully appreciate that IRBs can be advocates and not merely a clearing house or impediment to putting research in the field.

  • Tips for Reopening or Closing Research Studies
    • Abstract: The 2020 landscape for clinical trials looks different than it did five or 10 years ago. Even before the worldwide disruption in research from the COVID-19 pandemic, there were systemic shifts that have squeezed trials in ways that add pressure to investigators and IRBs.

  • IRBs Look at How to Get Through Pandemic — and Beyond
    • Abstract: As human research protection programs and IRBs enter the next leg of the COVID-19 pandemic, they can draw on experience to find the best balance between safety and efficiency. Each institution and IRB will face its own challenges. But one of the more common challenges as the United States copes with more than eight months of the crisis is pandemic fatigue and burnout.

  • Recurrent Stroke After Embolic Stroke of Undetermined Source
    • Abstract: Twenty percent to 40% of ischemic strokes are classified as cryptogenic, meaning a specific cause cannot be identified. A subset of those have been classified by some investigators as embolic stroke of undetermined source. However, this remains a controversial category and classification.
