Presented by Dr. Benjamin Wilfond
Tuesday, February 16, 2016 from 4:00-5:00pm
Health Sciences Building, T-739 Classroom
Objectives for this Lecture:
* Describe why the randomized study of oxygen saturation levels in premature infants was described in a New York Times editorial as startling and deplorable
* Understand why the Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP) thinks that research on medical practices using randomization is substantially risky
* Appreciate that the public views about the role of informed consent for comparative effectiveness research are different from regulators
ITHS and the Washington National Primate Research Center (WaNPRC) are pleased to sponsor the Ignition Award, which focuses on the use of non-human primate models of human disease.
The purpose of this Ignition Award is to explore innovative areas of nonhuman primate research and generate preliminary data to serve as a basis for submission of new research grant applications (e.g., R01-type grant to NIH or other funding agency) and/or subsequent clinical studies.
There will be up to three separate awards of up to $75,000: one with the primary focus on translational applications, and up to two pilot awards focusing on the development or enhancement of the use of non-human primates as animal models.
Number of Awards: Up to three.
Award Amounts: Up to $75,000 per award.
Eligibility: All faculty members (or those with equivalent titles) are eligible to apply, except those who have received an Ignition Award within the previous three years.
