Office of Research Ethics

The University of Lethbridge is committed to maintaining high standards, and requires that all research, teaching, and testing conducted by its members conform to the highest ethical and scientific standards with respect to the use of animals, human participants, radioisotopes and biohazards. Any research, teaching or testing conducted using University facilities, or undertaken by individuals connected to the University involving animals, human participants, radioisotopes, and biohazards must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate University Committee before the start of the research.

The Office of Research Ethics is responsible for the administration of the ethics review and approval process for research involving human participants and research, teaching, or testing using animal subjects. It is the responsibility of the researcher to ensure that the appropriate approvals are obtained in advance of the research being done, whether the research is funded or unfunded.
