Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Shapiro Cardiovascular Center

The Brigham and Women's Hospital Center for Clinical Investigation (CCI)presents a discussion that will focus on one of today’s hot topics surrounding large scale genomic and genetic research – return of genetic research results. The presentation will consider this issue from the regulatory, public, and ethical perspectives, as well as discuss the Partners Human Research Committee guidelines for reporting genetic results. This session is designed to discuss what's new in the field; time will also be devoted to questions


This course is recommended for both new and experienced clinicians, clinical investigators, nurses, and other clinical research staff who wish to expand their knowledge regarding research using human tissue.

RCR Credit:
Responsible Conduct of Research Rounds, or “RCR Rounds," are open to the entire BWH research community and are sponsored by either the Center for Clinical Investigation (CCI) and/or the Center for Faculty Development and Diversity Office for Research Careers (ORC). Some topics are applicable to all research, while others are designed for either clinical or basic researchers; please see the specific lecture details to know if the course fits your specific research education needs. Please note: Responsible conduct of research (RCR) training is required of students, trainees, and investigators with career development awards who are supported by National Institutes of Health (NIH) funds. Visit the RCR Rounds webpage for more information.
Completion of this lecture will fulfill one RCR lecture/discussion requirement.

Learning Objectives
Participants will be able to:
- discuss the regulatory/ethical issues related to return of genetic research results
- define the difference between “results related to the research” and “incidental findings”
- identify issues to consider when proposing returning research results to research subjects
