Research Ethics and Governance

The Office for Research (OFR) guides, authorises and supports researchers to conduct their research projects ethically.

All research conducted at Austin Health must receive both:

  • ethical approval by a certified Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC)
  • governance authorisation by the Office for Research before it can commence.

The Office for Research provides:

  • advice and support to researchers with every aspect of managing their research project
  • adminstrative support to Austin Health's ethics committees responsive for approving research projects.
