Ethics Committee Applications for Research Involving Human Subjects

Course Description

This workshop is offered by Professor John Foreman, UCL Division of Biosciences (Professor Emeritus) and Professor Raymond MacAllister, Department of Clinical Pharmacology. Both are members of the UCL (Non-NHS) Research Ethics Committee.

The workshop will be best suited to those who have started their research and are making, with their supervisors, applications to the ethics committees. One hour will be devoted to a talk on the principles of the application and what the committee is looking for. There will then be some practical exercises in which students are given actual applications (anonymous) to consider, as though they were an ethics committee. Discussion, facilitated by the tutors, will be rounded up with a session on the lessons learned.

"It was very helpful to simply be able to ask the experts questions - and hear other people ask questions I never would have thought of, but benefited from the answering of."

"Very informal and helpful."

"Excellent course - a must for anyone making an ethics application!"

"Very useful course if you plan to submit an application to UCLH ethics."
