Community-Based Participatory Research and Research Ethics

Institutional Review Boards were designed to protect the interests of individuals, but what about the interests of communities? Our Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) & Research Ethics Program seeks to address this issue through training, technical resources, and open dialogues between communities, academics, research ethics review boards, funders and other key stakeholders.
