2021 ERHR Workshop Webinar
• Audience: All researchers conducting human research studies.
The coronavirus SARS-COV-2 and its associated disease, COVID-19, have had profound
global effects on the ability to continue scientific research involving human subjects. Investigators leading and participating in these studies need to manage new ethical, health and safety issues in the presence of this highly infectious and potentially fatal disease. Additionally, investigators must account for this major confounding factor when analyzing the research data.
This webinar explores:
• Varying responses to SARS-COV-2/COVID- 19 across the globe, and their impacts on the
conduct of human research
• The ethical and safety issues specific to vision research and COVID-19
• How a major interruption or shutdown may impact experimental design and data analysis
