IU McKinney Hall Center for Law & Health: Virtual Grand Rounds – “Governing Secondary Research Use of Health Data and Specimens”
Sep 28 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The next IU McKinney Hall Center for Law & Health: Virtual Grand Rounds event will be, “Governing Secondary Research Use of Health Data and Specimens,” a talk by Kayte Spector-Bagdady, JD, MBioethics, Associate Director of the Center for Bioethics & Social Sciences in Medicine and Assistant Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology, University of Michigan Medical School. This event will be on Tuesday, September 28 from 1 – 2 pm. 

Some of the most promising recent advances in health research offer opportunities to improve diagnosis and therapy for millions of patients. They also require access to massive collections of health data and specimens. This need has generated an aggressive and lucrative push toward amassing troves of human data and biospecimens within academia and private industry. But the differences between the strict regulations that govern federally funded researchers in academic medical centers (AMCs) versus those that apply to the collection of health data and specimens by industry can entrench disparities. This presentation will discuss the value of secondary research with data and specimens and analyze why AMCs have been put at a disadvantage as compared to industry in amassing the large datasets that enable this work. It will explore the limitations of this current governance structure and propose that, moving forward, AMCs should set their own standards for commercialization of the data and specimens they generate in-house, the ability of their researchers to use industry data for their own work, and baseline informed consent standards for their own patients in order to ensure future data accessibility.

Think research misconduct allegations can’t happen to you? Think again!
Oct 6 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Research misconduct allegations at Indiana University continue to rise, and have a huge impact on the affected researchers, their colleagues, and their research. Falsification, fabrication, and plagiarism can happen in any discipline, on any campus, and often looks very different from the research misconduct cases in the headlines. In this new webinar series, IU Research Integrity Office (RIO) staff will join faculty members who adjudicate research misconduct cases to discuss the causes and consequences of research misconduct and share lessons learned from real cases right here at IU. You will learn what falsification, fabrication, and plagiarism look like in real life, how research misconduct allegations can affect you and your research, and approaches for preventing research misconduct, and research misconduct allegations, in your own labs and research teams.

The first session, “Small mistakes, big consequences,” will be on Wednesday, October 6, 2021  from 12:00pm – 1:00pm.

Many research misconduct allegations stem from sloppy mistakes or poor documentation practices. Research Integrity Office staff will highlight several examples from recent cases and faculty colleagues will offer potential solutions for ensuring protocol compliance.

Allen, PhD, Assistant Dean, Faculty Affairs and Professional Development; Professor, Department of Anatomy, Cell Biology & Physiology; Chair, IU Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), IU School of Medicine; Co-Director, Workforce Development, Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI)

With introductions by:

  • Fred Cate, Vice President for Research, IU, Distinguished Professor and C. Ben Dutton Professor of Law
  • Tatiana Foroud, PhD, Executive Associate Dean for Research Affairs, Chair, Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics, IU School of Medicine

This series is intended for research faculty, research business administrators, research coordinators, research technicians, post docs and graduate students within IU to provide the opportunity to identify research misconduct and discuss approaches for preventing it.
