PREPARING THE HUMAN SUBJECTS STUDY RECORD Applications for research funding which involve human subjects require comprehensive documentation of the investigator’s plans to collect information, perform research activities, and protect subjects. In addition to obtaining internal approvals via MSU’s IRB, the proposal may require a “Human Subjects Study Record” in which specific details must be provided on the subjects and study itself, plans for mitigating any risks, and potential benefits of the proposed study, among others. This seminar will provide instructions (including templates and forms) on completing both the internal IRB approval process via MyProtocol and the required PHS Human Subjects Study Record form and associated attachments, as well as how to include them with your proposal during submission.
DESIGNING AND GUIDING COMPLEX COLLABORATIONS: GETTING EVERYONE TO TAKE ACTION TOGETHER This session focuses on the importance of collaborative teams making commitments to connect and learn on a regular basis using the “30/30” tool. With the understanding that “thinking” and “doing” happen simultaneously, this skill focuses on how to set up a process to reconvene and continue to conduct focused conversations that will allow collaborations to learn, grow, and sustain momentum. Participants can expect to gain a better understanding of: • Successful on-going collaboration to support Team Science • The importance of learning loops and constant communication • The importance of utilizing short-term action plans • The characteristics of a “30/30” meeting • The critical role “30/30s” play in a successful collaboration • The importance of everyone taking a small step forward together
