Protecting human subjects focus of national FDA conference at UH

s well as giving presentations on topics such as the use of unapproved devices, bioterrorism and space research. Included in this prestigious list is Charles F. Sawin, the chief NASA scientist serving as chair of the Committee for Protection of Human Subjects and chair of the Human Research Multilateral Review Board at NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC). As a top figure in the IRBs of JSC and the International Space Station, Sawin will discuss issues relating to conducting research in space that involves human subjects. In addition, CEO's from MicroMed Technology, Pharma Frontiers and BioHouston also will be on hand to discuss issues experienced facing the private sector.

Additional topics will cover FDA monitoring and sanctions, new issues that are arising with the developing bionanotechnology field and bioterrorism issues faced by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

"While UH is the host, the conference is very much a community effort," Montoya said. "Among an impressive array of speakers will be top Texas Medical Center representatives and faculty from The University of Texas Health Science Center, Baylor College of Medicine and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. We've also had pre-med students from the local chapter of the American Medical Student Association sign on as volunteers. I'm really pleased with the level of involvement and the unity exhibited by so many in this important event."
