On July 21, 2016 NWABR will co-present its annual IRB conference with Quorum Review IRB.  Ethics and Regulation in the Digital Age will address how digital and emerging technologies impact all aspects of the work of researchers and IRBs, and in particular can conflict with ethics and regulations. This summer, join thought leaders from across the country for a day of education and networking that will challenge how we think about digital technology in the context of clinical research.
