11:10 amSIG Lecture--CANCELLED West Science
Alice Ganzel, associate professor of psychology, will speak on "The 'Moral Police?' Why You Should Care about the IRB and How to Make It Work for You." When does a class project pass into the realm of "research with human subjects" such that it requires IRB approval? What does it take to get a project approved? Is this just a bureaucratic hoop to jump through or is there something valuable to be learned by the experience? In this SIG lecture Ganzel will explore the history and role of Institutional Review Boards, and discuss what we (the Cornell IRB) see as their value. She will discuss some of the controversies engendered by ethical review, and offer practical advice about negotiating the process. This seminar will be valuable for anyone who may at some point present student and/or faculty research with human subjects in a public forum, including Student Symposium.
