SACHRP Seeks Nominations for New Members
The Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Human Research Protections (SACHRP), the advisory body of the Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP), is seeking nominations to fill two spots that will become vacant in July 2015. The Committee provides guidance on matters “relating to the responsible conduct of research involving human subjects with particular emphasis on special populations such as neonates and children, prisoners, the decisionally impaired, pregnant women, embryos and fetuses, individuals and populations in international studies, populations in which there are individually identifiable samples, data or information; and investigator conflicts of interest.”
Qualified candidates will possess expertise and experience in a field relevant to human subjects protection, including “public health and medicine, behavioral and social sciences, health administration, and biomedical ethics.” Nominations should consist of a letter of nomination as well as the candidate’s CV and contact information. They must be received by February 12, 2015. More information is available in the Federal Register notice.
