The IRB presents a new webinar on the second Thursday of every month during the academic calendar year. The presentations start at 12 pm and typically last about 30 minutes. See below for specific dates and topics that will be presented. Following the live presentation, the recording of the webinar and Q&A session will be archived for easy access.
