Ethical review for research in developing countries

Date & Time:

17th June 2019
15:45 - 16:15


Meeting Room 2a

Please note: this session is a PechaKucha and is booked with ‘Institutional partnerships for managing research data and beyond’ as a block. 

With the emergence of GCRF, Newton Fund and other ODA-related funding more and more academics are performing research in developing countries. Research managers and administrators need to be aware of the funder requirements around ethical approval of research in developing countries and provide guidance and support to their academics. Research in developing countries brings a new layer of complexity to the ethical review process and can cause delays to research and increase risk if not planned for. In the field of health research, these issues have been grappled with for a number of years and there are learnings which can be applied to other disciplines. The speaker will describe how their institution, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, has adapted processes, policies and procedures around ethical review to respond to the needs and requirements of research projects in developing countries.
