Guidelines and Procedures for Research Practices

The University community has a collective responsibility to ensure that proper research practices are carried out in accordance with both international and University standards and regulations at all times, to be vigilant in guarding against serious lapses, and to report violations if they occur.
All research conducted at the University whenever involving animals, human participants, and safety should be reviewed for research practices. Under the auspices of the Committee on Research Practices, there are three Committee/Panels to review such practices. They are:

  1. Animal Ethics Committee;
  2. Human Participants Research Panel; and
  3. Safety Panel.
