All our research studies are approved by the following Human Research Ethics Committees:

Approval can be obtained from other hospital or university human research ethics committees to allow us to access their facilities.
The role of an Ethics Committee is to consider the ethical implications of proposed research projects involving human subjects. All ethics committees and researchers follow the guidelines as set out in the NHMRC National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research and NHMRC Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research.
