Revised guidelines on "Ethics Review of Student Research Involving Human Subjects"
Undergraduate student research projects are subject to ethical review by either the Departmental Ethics Review Committee (DERC) or the NUS Institutional Review Board (NUS-IRB). In cases where the undergraduate student research is of minimal risk, DERCs may undertake the review in lieu of the NUS-IRB.
New guidelines on "Changes to Review Categories"
In keeping with the evolving research landscape, the NUS-IRB has revised the category of review for certain types of research studies. Please refer to our News Alert and the relevant guidelines (IRB-GUIDE-022) for more details.
Note: All new applications must be submitted in hardcopy to the IRB office.
Guidelines and Forms are accessible to NUS researchers only. For non-NUS researchers, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
