Research Ethics in the Oxford Medical Sciences Division - Who to Apply to and how to Prepare the Application

This session will be a semi-formal presentation, with scope for questions both during, and after, the presentation. It will commence with an introduction to research ethics approvals and why/when they are needed. The various research ethics committees (both within Oxford University and the NHS) will be introduced, together with guidance as to which to apply to depending on the nature of the research proposal. We will then discuss the process of application to an ethics committee, including preparation of required study documents.
