The Office of Research Compliance provides training resources for those conducting human subjects research. Completion of online modules (linked from www.compliance.gatech.edu) is required, as is advance review by the Institutional Review Board (IRB). Researchers who will possess or access personally identifiable health information (PHI) need to be aware of recently heightened HIPAA federal regulations and new penalties for improper disclosure. They will need to complete the module, “Health Information Privacy and Security (HIPS) for Biomedical Research Investigators.” Presentations and workshops on protecting human subjects are available through the Office of Research Compliance. For details, contact Barbara S. Henry, Director, at 404 / 894-6949, or send email to email@example.com.
