General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):
Common Applications to U.S. Researchers

Kristin Craun, MPH, CIP
David Peloquin, JD

October 9, 2018 – 10:00am – 11:30am EST
October 11, 2018 – 3:30pm – 5:00pm EST

The European Union’s landmark privacy legislation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), took effect on May 25, 2018.  The law has a broad extra-territorial reach, but determining its application to research conducted at, or supported by, U.S. universities and academic medical centers can be challenging.  In this webinar, the speakers will address several scenarios in which the GDPR affects research conducted at U.S. universities and academic medical centers and offer practical tips for addressing each fact pattern as well as a general framework for analyzing the impact of the GDPR on other types of research studies.  

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Appreciate the jurisdictional reach of the GDPR
  • Understand how to analyze when a specific research study is subject to the GDPR
  • Appreciate the differences between U.S. regulatory regimes (e.g., the Common Rule and HIPAA) and the GDPR
  • Have a sense of common approaches adopted by U.S. institutional review boards to address GDPR requirements
  • Understand strategies for negotiating with clinical trial sponsors and sites located in the European Union
