Human research ethics drop-in sessions

Are you preparing a human research ethics application? Or do you have questions regarding ethics clearances you currently have? Swinburne Research Ethics, Integrity and Biosafety is launching ethics drop-in sessions for research staff and students to:

  • discuss ethics requirements for your research
  • get help preparing ethics applications
  • discuss the committee’s feedback on ethics applications that have already been reviewed
  • get help submitting modification requests or annual reports
  • raise any other queries you have about human research ethics.

Drop-in sessions

Sessions are held every second Wednesday from 3pm to 4.30pm.

  • Wednesday 19 December
  • Wednesday 9 January

To make an appointment email resethics@swinburne.edu.au. You are welcome to just ‘drop in’ but preference will be given to those who have made a booking. If this time/day doesn’t suit you, please contact us to arrange an alternative time.

Sessions are held in the Office of Research Ethics, Integrity and Biosafety, SPS building, level 1.
