Human Subjects Research

The key goal of Human Research Ethics is to protect Human Research Subjects who participate in research. The underlying principles of the approach are enshrined in international agreements such as the 1964 Helsinki Declaration, in which nations around the world agree to oversee medical research using humans and apply the Nuremberg Principles to all such research. In line with European guidance on research ethics, we apply these principles also to non-medical human research conducted at our university.
