CITI Program Releases New Mobile Apps Module Co-Authored by Advarra Experts

The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI Program) has released the new module “Mobile Apps and Human Subject Research” co-authored by Advarra experts Michele Russell-Einhorn, JD, Chief Compliance Officer and Institutional Official, and Kindra Cooper, JD, MPA, MA, IRB Chairperson.

This module is part of the CITI Program’s Human Subjects Research Catalog and discusses the definitions, potential uses, and governing regulations of mobile medical apps involved in research. The module also covers IRB review considerations for mobile app-based research.

“Mobile apps are a new frontier in research, and the regulations governing their use are similarly new and unfamiliar,” said Russell-Einhorn. “Kindra and I have been learning all we can on the topic to support Advarra’s IRB reviews. We are honored to now share our knowledge with the greater research community.”

Russell-Einhorn and Cooper are frequent speakers and contributors to research community educational events and publications. Russell-Einhorn also contributed to the Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI) MCT (Mobile Clinical Trials) mobile device technologies recommendations and resources and has presented several conference sessions and webinars on using mobile technologies in clinical trials.

Founded in 2000, the CITI Program is dedicated to promoting the public’s trust in the research enterprise by providing high quality, peer-reviewed, web-based educational courses in research, ethics, regulatory oversight, and other pertinent topics.
