"Brookhaven Awards" are annually presented to staff whose performance and achievements represent outstanding service to the Brookhaven National Laboratory. This year, one of five awards was given to Darcy Mallon who helped create the Office of Research Administration (ORA) within the BNL Director's Office. The ORA has administrative responsibilities for the Institutional Review Board (IRB), the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), and the Radioactive Drug Research Committee (RDRC). Ms. Mallon and staff drafted IRB and IACUC policies and procedures for human subject and animal research and created and maintained an ORA web site with web-based support for all human subject and animal research investigators. Ms. Mallon created the formal education and training programs now required for IRB and IACUC members, and has made significant contributions to the formal training programs for human subjects and animal research investigators. Additionally, Ms. Mallon recently passed the new national certification examination given in October 2000 to become one of the first 100 individuals in the US to hold the title "Certified IRB Professional."
