Expertise - The Founders of Learn eCORE have decades of experience in conducting human subjects research, implementing federal research policies and regulations including the revised Common Rule, and developing research compliance and ethics training programs. The federal regulations for both human subjects research and conflict of interest are complex and require in-depth familiarity with the rules as well associated guidance and policies to ensure accurate training. While Learn eCORE is a new company, it is founded on a long history of experience in research compliance and ethics. For example, the Learn eCORE founders helped develop the popular Protecting Human Research Participants course that used to be offered by NIH.
