External Ethics Review

If your study requires External Ethics Review, e.g. through MODREC or the HRA, the Research & Enterprise Office can assist with your submission. Please contact the Research Governance Officer for support. If your study has already received external ethics review please upload a copy via LEON.

NHS Research

If your study involves the NHS please refer to the NHS Study Chart to determine the type of review that is required.

Details of studies reviewed by NHS RECs (and not sponsored by LU) should be sent to the Ethics Review Sub-Committee.  Please upload details of the NHS REC outcome and a copy of the research protocol to LEON.
