Research ethics and guidelines


Human research ethics approval

In Australia, any research involving humans must consider ethics. We conduct research into many aspects of cancer and have a Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC), made up of volunteer experts, to oversee the ethical aspects of research.

Research proposals (and amendments) are reviewed to ensure ethical standards are met and participant confidentiality is protected. The progress of approved research is monitored with annual reports from researchers.
