An OHR representative can visit your classroom and conduct an IRB process, human subjects research, or ethics workshop upon request. Please submit requests at least one month in advance, if able. This allows time to tailor the outreach to your specific needs. Please send requests to ohrirb@gwu.edu, with the subject line "Classroom Outreach Request." Include your name, date and time requested, department name, and type of request. Arrangements can be made to visit all campuses. Evening (after 5:30PM) classroom sessions are hosted via WebEx.

Please send requests to ohrirb@gwu.edu, subject line “Department Outreach Request." Include your name, date, time, department and type of request. We will work with you to create a presentation or facilitate a discussion that best meets the needs of your group.

IRB Training Series

IRB Training Series

The IRB Training Series is OHR's educational offering for the GW research community and covers a range of topics related to the IRB review process, human subjects research, and the policies and federal regulations that guide GW human subjects research protections programs.  We invite all GW researchers, faculty, staff, and students involved with or considering conducting human subjects research to attend the IRB Training Series as often as possible.

The upcoming IRB Training Series session topics are posted here. You will also find information regarding each IRB Training Series session posted as upcoming events on the OHR homepage and when following OHR on any of our social media platforms.
