Student work in human subjects protection sought for FDA conference at UH

HOUSTON, March 23, 2005 From glucometers used by diabetics to stents used by cardiologists, new medical devices inevitably must be tested on human subjects. A national conference is seeking student work in the field of contemporary human subjects protection.

Co-sponsored by the Food and Drug Administration and the University of Houston, the April 21-22 event is one of only three annual conferences sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP). Titled "The Critical Path to New Medical Products: The Challenges in Protecting Human Subjects," the theme is directed at exploring the FDA critical pathway for approval of new medical products and will be held at the Hilton UH Hotel and Conference Center.

"In order to promote the next generation who will oversee the protection of human subjects in research, we are calling for abstracts on the topic to be presented at poster sessions both days of the conference," said Isaac D. Montoya, clinical professor in the UH College of Pharmacy. "We intentionally limited the poster session to students so that they have the opportunity to showcase their work to a group of senior researchers. We want to highlight and encourage work in this field and are interested in any work students are doing or have done in the area of protecting human subjects, ethics and other related topic areas."

Medical and clinical papers also will be accepted, but only if they somehow have to do with protecting human subjects specifically in research. The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 15.
