Coming up on Wednesday, March 2nd, the University of Minnesota will host the Annual Research Ethics Day Conference – Deepening Engagement and Equity in Research: Next Steps in Research Ethics.
Join interdisciplinary experts via Zoom to hear how engagement and equity will shape the future of research ethics. National leaders will discuss the challenges and benefits of enhanced engagement with historically underserved communities and how engagement can advance more equitable outcomes in precision medicine, environmental and global health, and neuroscience research.

The roster of national leaders includes Dr. Consuelo Hopkins Wilkins, Engagement Core Director of the All of Us Research Program, Dr. Katrina Claw, Assistant Professor of Medicine – Bioinformatics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Dr. Mónica Ramírez-Andreotta, Associate Professor of Soil, Water & Environmental Science at the University of Arizona, Dr. Shailey Prasad, Executive Director of the Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility, Dr. Jonathan Jackson, Executive Director of the Community Access, Recruitment, and Engagement Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and Dr. Judy Illes, CUBC Distinguished University Scholar and Director of Neuroethics Canada.
