Research Involving Humans
All research involving human participants conducted by faculty, staff, and students of Brock University, regardless of where the research is conducted or whether it is for academic publication or internal use must be reviewed by either the Social Science Research Ethics Board (SREB) or the Bioscience Research Ethics Board (BREB). This also applies to research conducted on Brock premises by researchers who are not members of the Brock community but wish to utilize Brock resources. To obtain more information about what may require clearance please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page or contact the Research Ethics Office.

Due to the current volume of applications, researchers should anticipate a 20 (working) day turnaround time on delegated (minimal risk) reviews and plan project timelines accordingly. Expedited reviews will only be considered in exigent circumstances.
Applications for full board review should be submitted at least 10 working days prior to a monthly scheduled meeting.
An Introduction to Clinical Trial Research:
Do you conduct clinical trial research? The most common clinical trials are biomedical and behavioural, but Canada's Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS2) defines a clinical trial as any form of investigation involving participants that evaluates the effects of one or more health-related interventions on a health outcome.
Join us for this introductory session on clinical trials, the regulations that govern them, and relevant ethical considerations involved for both researchers and REB members.
