Privacy and Human Subject Research | Interdisciplinary Lunch Series

Date(s) - 01/18/2013
12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Marion A. Cowell, Jr. Boardroom (Room 5003), UNC School of Law

On January 18, the Center will host an interdisciplinary lunch on the topic of “Privacy and Human Subject Research.” Human subject research, both biomedical and behavioral, is regulated in the United States primarily by the Department of Health, Education & Welfare, which first issued regulations governing research with human subjects in the 1970s. The lunch, which is open to all UNC faculty, will focus on how advances in technology have changed the ways human subject research is conducted and the many privacy issues that accompany such research.

The lunch discussion will be led by Professors John Conley, Anne Klinefelter and Andrew Chin from the UNC School of Law and will take place from 12:00 to 1:15 p.m. in the Marion A. Cowell, Jr. Boardroom (Room 5003) at the UNC School of Law.

Background Readings

To help guide the discussion, we have selected several optional background articles on the topic:

  • John M. Conley et al., A Trade Secret Model for Genomic Biobanking (we’ll provide an unpublished draft to attendees)

We plan to use these readings as a jumping off point for the conversation, but we also are eager to discuss how these issues intersect with your work.


We hope that you can make it. Please RSVP to Liz Woolery by January 15, as space will be limited. The Center will provide box lunches and drinks.
