The American Indian/Alaska Native Clinical and Translational Research Program is hosting a five-part virtual seminar series titled A Series of Human Clinical Trial Training Seminars. Zoom seminars are scheduled every Friday from January 22 through February 12 from noon to 1:00 p.m. (during TRiM Journal Club) and can be accessed at https://alaska.zoom.us/j/899633093. The purpose of this seminar series is to promote greater understanding about human clinical trial research that will hopefully inspire future investigators to engage in this line of inquiry. The series offers training on a range of topics including the basics of clinical research and resources available through the Institute of Translational Health Science at UW, case examples of clinical trials being conducted by scientists at UAF, UAA, and ANTHC, policies/regulations pertaining to the IRB process for Alaska and Montana, and a presentation about tribal approval and data sharing agreements for research involving Alaska’s indigenous peoples. See this flyer for more information.
