Laura Miller, the Director of the Human Research Protection Program at INOVA hospital in Virginia, came to Stevenson last week to speak to Biotechnology 205 students about protection of human research subjects. She received her Master’s degree in health system administration from Georgetown University in 2005 and has worked at INOVA since 2006. Ms. Miller strives to bring more research into the healthcare setting, but her focus is mainly on protecting the human participants during research. Her presentation helped reinforce student learning about safety concerns for subjects involved in human trials.
