Submission and Meeting Dates

The Faculty Human Ethics Committee will meet 9 times in 2018. Applications for ethics approval should be submitted via Themis by the Faculty Submission Date (first column). ‘Minimal Risk’ applications are reviewed and approved at Faculty level, so applicants need only note the dates in the first two columns. Higher-risk ‘Standard Project’ applications required additional review at the central level, so applicants should note the relevant dates in all four columns.
