Our team in the Research Strategy and Services Division can work with you to ensure that your project operates within a framework of best practice in ethics, integrity and governance.

The Research Ethics, Governance and Integrity team:

  • Co-ordinates the university’s internal ethical review processes for externally funded staff and postgraduate research projects, administering the ethics self-assessment process, processing applications for further ethical review, supporting the university’s ethics committees and providing training on research ethics.
  • Acts as the university’s sponsor representative for research conducted under the UK Policy Framework for Health and Social Care and the Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) regulations. The team support academics through the internal and external approvals required for research involving NHS staff or patients, and maintain oversight of compliance with annual reporting requirements and end-of-study obligations.
