Ethics Committee

This committee meets 9-10 times a year to consider research projects involving healthy human volunteers. The main objectives of the committee are to:

  • maintain ethical standards of practice in research
  • protect subjects of research from harm
  • preserve the subjects' rights, welfare and dignity
  • provide reassurance to the public that the above is being done

For current application forms

Please e-mail  fmhs-researchethics@nottingham.ac.uk giving a brief outline of what your study is about so we can send you the correct forms and templates.

For studies involving NHS, or NOMS staff, patients, prisoners, young offenders, premises, data, or records

It is important that you first contact the University of Nottingham Research Governance team who co-ordinate research done in collaboration with these bodies by students and staff of the University. Please e-mail sponsor@nottingham.ac.uk giving an outline of what and who your study involves.  They will then be able to advise you on what you need to do.
