As part of the Essential Knowledge of Research Management seminar organised by UQ Research & Innovation each semester, the Ethics Coordinator gives a presentation about the administrative processes concerning the ethical review of applications.

The Human Ethics Unit also coordinate and deliver customised training packages for UQ’s schools and institutes. These training packages are developed to assist researchers to understand their responsibilities relating to ethical conduct and explain UQ’s Human Ethics application and review processes. The information presented in these training sessions can be tailored to your school/institute’s research areas. Please contact Nicole Shively (07 336 53571) to discuss training options for your school/institute.

The workshop will be held on Tuesday 13 September from 9am–12pm in St Leo's College Conference Room, St Lucia. Places are limited so please click here to RSVP.
