Human protection practices honored at three institutions
Three institutions recently were honored by the Health Improvement Institute for their contributions to enhancing the protection of research subjects.
The 2009 Award for Excellence in Human Research Protection-Best Practice went to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA, the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project in Pittsburgh, PA and Washington University in St. Louis, MO. IRB Advisor spoke to those involved in the projects at all three institutions to learn how they developed their practices and what implications their work could have for other institutions.
