    Training to enable Supervisors and Research Students to develop applications for ethical approval

    Any research project that involves the study of humans - even simply interviewing human subjects - or examination of biological samples (such as blood or tissue samples) taken from humans, cannot begin without specific Ethics Committee permission. This session explains how to apply for permission through UREC, the University's Research Ethics Committee. It is essential for anyone who is likely to be working with human subjects or materials and it may also be of general interest to others. Supervisors will find this a useful session to attend as preparation for guiding your students through the process of preparing and applying for ethical approval

    Professor David Evans Chair of the University's Research Ethics Committee and Dr Robyn Curtis, Research Ethics and Integrity Officer
