Faculty Profile

As a longtime member of the IRB, I have had the opportunity to review many types of human subject research. I firmly believe that such research is critical to improving the health and welfare of our growing population. It is often difficult, however, to balance the importance of research to society as a whole against the rights of the individual research subject. As chair of the IRB for the University of Maryland, Baltimore, I have the privilege of acting as the advocate for the research subject, helping to assure the safety of those volunteers willing to donate time and effort to promote excellence in human research.

Faculty Profile

There is an ethical obligation to maximize safety in research. At a very basic level, the principle of beneficence requires that harm to research subjects is minimized. In addition, trust in the research enterprise is consistently found to be central to the decisions of individuals to participate in research. Consequently, research must be trustworthy. As such, research must be well-designed, as safe as possible, and responsibly conducted.

I chose to be Vice Chair because I believe that collectively, our institution, investigators, and IRB can improve the health of others through reasoned, ethical, and ambitious investigations. I enjoy being a part of that progress as a clinician, researcher, and IRB member.
