Here you can find the task descriptions, meeting times, and information on the members of the various HUS committees.

Ethics Committees

HUS has four Ethics Committees I–IV that deal with statement requests in all fields of medical research. NIH-funded studies are processed in Committee III and studies on radiation research are primarily processed in committees I and IV. The Ethics Committee monitors the safety and potential vulnerability of research subjects, the recruitment methods of the subjects, the adequacy of research resources and insurance coverage, and that the benefits of the research outweigh the harm it may cause.

University Committee
