Research Ethics and Governance
Research team

Gaining authorisation to conduct research at a Public Health Organisation is a two-step process; ethics AND governance.

An approval letter must be obtained from a Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) and NSLHD research governance before any research can commence at any NSLHD site.

The NSLHD Research Office receives and manages applications to the NSLHD HREC and receives and reviews applications to research governance. All applications must be submitted via Regis.

In addition to managing applications for human research, the Research Office is also responsible for receiving and managing applications for the Royal North Shore Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) and the NSLHD Animal Ethics Committee (AEC).
