||SACHRP provides expert advice and recommendations to the Secretary, HHS, on issues and topics pertaining to the protection of human research subjects. The committee is composed of 11 appointed voting members, with additional ex-officio representation from Common Rule agencies. SACHRP presently has two working subcommittees, the Subpart A Subcommittee and the Subcommittee on Harmonization. The July 2014 meeting will include reports from both subcommittees, as well as special panel reports focusing on comprehension and informed consent, regulatory issues concerning big data, and the return of general results to research subjects; there will also be a discussion of ethical and regulatory issues in interventional social media research. The meeting is open to the public and time is allotted on both days for public comment.
