This website facilitates you to submit your study proposal for ethical review by the
CTc (Centrale ethische Toetsingscommissie van het UMCG) or an LTc (Lokale ethische Toetsingscommissie).
This website is developed for researcher from the UMCG departments who participate in the pilot:
- Health Sciences (Community and Occupational Medicine)
- Human Movement Sciences
- Internal Medicine
Since the pilot has been positively evaluated in December 2018, other UMCG departments that endorse the advantages of ethics review in non-WMO studies are strongly invited to align and contact Han Boter (). Researchers – from these departments – who would like to submit their non-WMO study for ethics review are asked to submit their proposal to the CTc.
Study proposals should meet the following application requirements:
In case you would like your application to be reviewed by an LTc (instead of CTc) make sure that you meet the application requirements of this specific LTc and select this LTc in the drop down list of the application form.
Note that only the applicant has access to the study files and receives (email) messages from the CTc/LTc/METc offices. This is, the person who logs in and completes the application form. However, the final decision of the CTc/LTc will also be send to the Principal Investigator (cc) as recorded in the application form.
Names, emailadresses of other persons mentioned in the form will not be used for correspondence unless the applicant does no longer work at the UMCG.
For questions, please contact the research coordinator of your department.
