The Heat of Summer: Managing Visiting Summer Student Researchers

Washington University HRPO staff members Carissa Minder and Martha Jones recently presented a poster at the Public Responsibility in Medicine and Research (PRIM&R) national conference in San Antonio, TX. The poster was a description of a novel program developed by HRPO for onboarding visiting summer student researchers. The poster highlights the success of the program including a decrease in mean IRB approval time from 20 days to 1 day. The poster generated great interest and was very well received by colleagues of peer institutions. Several acknowledged the challenges of quickly onboarding summer students and look to use this as a model for increased efficiency at their own institutions. VIEW POSTER
