Title: London Research Ethics Committees are recruiting new members
Post by: Garry Brough on January 18 2011, 03:16 pm
Research Ethics Committees in London are recruiting new members.

We are looking for NHS users - patients, ex-patients or their relatives - interested in scrutinising the ethical aspects of research proposals.

Committee members receive training in ethical review and have opportunities to debate challenging issues in the life sciences to help protect the rights and well-being of research participants and promote ethical research. 

Positions are voluntary but expenses are paid, including travel and childcare costs if applicable. Committees meet on average for half a day per month and applicants will need to be able to attend at least two thirds of meetings.

Please note there is no deadline for applications the recruitment process is ongoing.

To find out more please contact:
