Research Ethics Grand Rounds Lecture: Managing Expectations, Encouraging Hope: Sharing the Truth in Research Advertising
Feb. 6 (Th)
12:00 p.m.

Held in Room 241 of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center/One Magnolia Circle Building. Researchers know that there are countless steps involved between a research hypothesis and a potentially life-altering intervention for patients. These steps often include multiple pre-clinical and clinical studies which may require human research participants. But during the recruitment phase of research, how can researchers manage sometimes unrealistic expectations of vulnerable populations of individuals who may believe that participation in a clinical study could bring about a rare discovery or “miracle cure” for themselves or loved ones with a disability or illness? How can we avoid “overselling” research involvement while recruiting participants, while still imparting the importance of their participation in research and encouraging hope for the future of the study?

Join us for a panel discussion on ethical implications of being “consumers of research” and transparency in research messaging when recruiting research participants.

Panelists include:

  • Bob Hodapp, Ph.D. (moderator), Professor of Special Education
  • Colleen Niswender, Ph.D., Research Associate Professor of Pharmacology; Director of Molecular Pharmacology, Vanderbilt Center for Neuroscience Drug Discovery
  • Sarika Peters, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences
  • Alecia Talbott, Executive Director, Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee, and parent of a child with a disability

A light lunch will be served. Please register by Friday, Jan. 31.
