Oncology Innovations and Other Trending Topics from IRB Experts

Oncology has long been an early adopter of research innovations, such as gene therapy, cross-organization collaboration, and novel protocol design, which has both affirmed and propelled ground-breaking contributions in clinical research.

Join colleagues from NCI-designated cancer centers for a discussion on hot topics in oncology research. This expert panel discussion includes both institutional review board (IRB) chairpersons, as well as current and former directors of human research protection programs (HRPP) from academic medical centers. Together, they discuss the unique ways oncology has pioneered clinical trial advancements and explore how IRBs/HRPPs review research involving new treatment options. Additionally, they examine how mainstream attention on clinical trial participation and diversity of volunteers impacts the oncology space in future clinical trials.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore how IRBs/HRPPs review research involving new treatment options
  • Discuss diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) issues in oncology research
  • Outline lessons learned from conducting oncology trials virtually
