Ethics – Research with Humans (RCH-020 -010) • Research with humans or human biological

Ethics – Research with Humans (RCH-020 -010) • Research with humans or human biological material must be reviewed by the Research Ethics Board (REB) before you start the research. • Remember that the REB process is iterative. It is okay to ask the REB why specific recommendations were made or if there are other ways to address the issue. • Funds will not be released until REB approval is in place, but there is a process to allow access to some funds for preparatory work.
