Corrections

In last week’s issue, Mrs. Annenberg’s first name was misspelled; it is Leonore. Also, in the Campus Development Plan, the membership of the Trustees Ad Hoc Committee on Campus Development included the name of a trustee who is not on the committee (Paul Kelly) and omitted one who is (David Silfen). The Campus Development Plan 2006 Interim Report is available online as a PDF at www.upenn.edu/almanac/volumes/v52/n21/acrobat.html.

We regret the errors.

Informed Consent Language Library Correction:

In an effort to clarify a statement we published in the January 17 issue, the language contained in the IC Library should not be considered “approveable” by the IRB. The release should have stated that, “The IC Library was developed to assist investigators meet Federal regulations on human research protections which require consent documents to be written in language that is understandable to the prospective research subject. While the library is seen by the School of Medicine as a valuable resource that may help an investigator improve the readability of the informed consent document, the IRB may still exercise its authority to require changes to the informed consent document.”
