Ethics and governance

The Human Research Ethics and Governance office is committed to providing support to all stakeholders in the research process and to facilitating the conduct of well-designed, scientifically sound, and ethically appropriate human research in the public interest

Our Ethics Committee is constituted and operates in accordance with the National statement ethical conduct in human research and relevant state and national legislation, regulations, and guidelines. It is certified by the National Health and Medical Research Council to review human research in oncology. The separation of responsibility for the governance of research from ethical review of that research is a key concept underpinning the introduction of multisite ethical review models. Human research projects may be reviewed and approved by the Peter Mac Ethics Committee for multiple participating sites under the National Mutual Acceptance Scheme. Governance review and authorisation of research projects is carried out by the Human Research Ethics and Governance office.
