This notice is to inform all researchers that poor quality applications submitted for HREB review will no longer be accepted as these do not meet REB review requirements.  This includes poor quality applications identified in the screening process and poor quality re-submissions post screening.  Extensive feedback about how to improve poor quality submissions will not be provided by the Ethics Office. If faculty are supervising students conducting health research, supervisors are required to review student’s applications prior to submission to the HREB.  Failure to submit applications that meet REB review requirements will result in delays in the research ethics review process.
