Welcome Back Owls!
Here’s what’s been happening this summer:
Research Integrity Institutional Review Board (IRB) personnel update:
Effective Aug. 1, 2020, Ximena Levy, left, MD, MPH, director of the FAU Clinical Research Unit (CRU), will transition full time to this position. She was promoted this position in January, but continued to serve both as director of the CRU and as associate director of the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) in Research Integrity.
The Division of Research – especially the Research Integrity unit – thank her for her assistance and support of the IRB/HRPP team during what was supposed to be a transition period of a couple of months, but ended up being an extended period of time.
Elisa Gaucher, assistant vice president for Research Integrity will assume the role on an interim basis relying on the current IRB/HRPP team, Donna Simonovitch, manager HRPP and Judith Martinez, manager of training and unit operations.
Connect with any of them if you need assistance with human subjects research.
