OUR TOPIC:  Overview of Changes to the Common Rule


  • Sharon Ellison, PharmD, Lead Chair, DUHS IRB
  • June Walker, MS, MSCR, CIP, Director of IRB Compliance, DUHS IRB
  • Duke University Health System Institutional Review Board

The presentation will begin with key points and timeline of the changes to the Revised Common Rule. We will focus on these areas: Changes to informed consent, changes to requirements for continuing review, changes to what qualifies as exempt research, impacts on cooperative research, broad consent, and other miscellaneous revisions.

Sharon Ellison has spent almost her entire research career at Duke Hospital and University, beginning in 1991. Twelve of those years were as a pharmacist with the Investigational Drug Service, twenty of those as an IRB member, and nine as a Chair or Lead Chair, in the DUHS IRB Office.

June Walker joined the staff of the DUHS IRB in 2004, while she was completing the Master of Clinical Research (MSCR) program at Campbell University. She works to ensure the IRB is operating in compliance with federal regulations, state law, and institutional policies; and she leads AAHRPP Accreditation activities for Duke Health.

Both Sharon and June work extensively with Duke biomedical researchers to help them conduct their research in compliance with federal requirements.
