Research Ethics Advisors (REAs)
Research Ethics Advisors (REAs) are the first "port-of-call" for researchers requiring assistance or advice on human research ethics matters.
REAs are located at the School/College level to provide support to researchers, both staff and students, in designing ethically acceptable human research and to assist them through the ethics approval process. REA's also conduct educational seminars in their Colleges on human research ethics at least annually.
