The Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research will host Driving Responsible Conduct of Research During a Pandemic, a virtual conference highlighting the challenges and lessons learned in conducting high quality, ethical clinical and translational research during a pandemic. The program will focus on the knowledge gained during the past year, but also compare the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) challenges to other recent health crises, such as Zika and Ebola.
The conference will be held in three-hour intervals virtually from April 12-16. There will be an opening meeting, panel discussions and four workshops that will be tasked with developing best practices for the responsible conduct of research about specific topics. These include getting informed consent when patients are very ill and family are not physically present, conflicts between treating physicians and researchers and confirming the quality of data.
