Event Details

For the first time in 25 years, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has proposed significant revisions to “The Common Rule”, the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects in research.

Adoption of these revisions would, among other things, modify informed consent, count de-identified specimens as human subjects, and require specific data security measures. HHS received more than 2,000 comments in response—some applause and much outrage.

So what do the proposed revisions actually say, and what would it mean for human subjects research?

Dr. Jessica D. Tenenbaum is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics. She serves on the Board of Directors for the American Medical Informatics Society (AMIA) and chairs AMIA’s Genomics and Translational Bioinformatics Working Group.
