The IOM Roundtable on Environmental Health Sciences, Research, and Medicine will host a workshop on Principles and Best Practices for Sharing Data from Environmental Health Research. 8:30 a.m. start.
Environmental health experts agree that the question is not "if" research data should be shared, but "how." Transparency and accessibility of data derived from human subjects raise ethical, scientific, and process questions not necessarily salient in other areas of science, such as physics, geology, or chemistry. The workshop will explore key concerns, principles, and best practices to foster the responsible sharing of data used in support of environmental health research and policy-making.
This event is free and open to the public. A live webcast of the event will also be available for those unable to attend in-person. Registration  is required.
