Research Ethics Drop-In Sessions


PLEASE NOTE: Due to staff shortages we are currently unable to run the drop in sessions. Please contact the ethics office regarding your enquiry.


Drop-in Sessions


To assist research staff and students in continuing their work, we run Zoom research ethics drop-in sessions for anyone who has questions or requires advice about human and animal ethics and rDNA monitoring. Attendees will enter a virtual “waiting room” on Zoom and will be assisted in a first come first served basis by someone from the research ethics team. 

When:  We will update this page when we are able to resume the sessions. Thank you for your patience.


Event description

Join us at one of our Research Ethics Drop-in Sessions to meet the ethics team, talk through your ethics application, discuss training option and requirements and obtain advice and assistance on addressing feedback from an ethics committee. Research Ethics Officers will be available to answer questions and provide advice about the rDNA (the use of genetically modified organisms), human and animal ethics application processes. A veterinarian from the veterinary services team will also be available to provide advice on developing humane endpoints, anaesthetics, analgesia etc.
