The Office of Research Ethics, on behalf of Western's Research Ethics Boards (REB), manages the approval and monitoring process for the use of humans in research at the University and its affiliated hospitals and research institutes. All research involving humans conducted by faculty, staff or students at Western or its affiliated hospitals or research institutes must be approved by a Western-sanctioned review board.
The Office of Research Ethics will be closed from December 24th 2015 to January 3rd 2016 for the holidays. New HSREB delegated applications received prior to the closure will be reviewed up to 15 working days from the date that the submission is received by the REB. HSREB Amendment applications received prior to the closure will be reviewed within 15 to 20 working days from the date that the submission is received by the REB. Any new applications/events received during the holiday closure will be processed on January 4th, 2016.
