Tuesday, May 21, 2024:

The Pre-Conference Workshop Day consists of a choice of the two following workshops:

The Accreditation Workshop includes practical, interactive sessions focused on the steps to achieving/maintaining AAHRPP accreditation. Join AAHRPP staff members and special guest presenters as they guide you through the steps to accreditation.

The CAN (Collaborative AAHRPP Network) Workshop is exclusively for AAHRPP-accredited organizations and provides an opportunity to collaborate with colleagues, identify and advance solutions or best practices, and create resources to address shared challenges.

These hands-on workshops will NOT be livestreamed or recorded. The only way to participate in these workshops is to join us in San Diego!

Day One of our Main Conference is our Plenary Day.

This year's Plenary day will include three thought-provoking sessions, including “Where We Were", "Where We Are and Where We Are Going”, and “Safeguarding Participants in Emerging Technologies”.  All three Plenary sessions will be livestreamed for our virtual audience and will be followed by Deep Dive sessions that afternoon.  

Other highlights of day one include the “State of AAHRPP” Welcome Session featuring Elyse Summers, President and CEO, and Stephen Rosenfeld, AAHRPP Board Chair, along with the annual lunchtime “Friends of AAHRPP” Awards.

Exhibitors and Sponsors will be on hand to discuss your specific needs and will also have virtual booths on the online Attendee Hub.

Thursday, May 23, 2024

Day Two of our Main Conference is our Breakout Session Day.

Breakout session day includes 25 breakout sessions filled with interactive, insightful, and innovative content designed to inspire, refresh, and revitalize your commitment to protecting research participants.   ONE highlighted session in each time slot will be livestreamed for our virtual audience. 

Posters will be displayed in person and virtually on the Attendee Hub.  Make sure to vote for your favorite poster during the conference! 

Please note: only the Plenary and livestreamed breakout sessions will be recorded and available on-demand after the conference.

See you in San Diego!
