Research Involving Humans

It is important that all staff and students understand, and adhere to, UK and EU legislation pertaining to reseach relating to human participants. If you are a University employee or student and are involved in research of this kind, you should be aware of your obligations and responsibilities.

There are a number of types of research involving humans conducted at the University. Some of these studies involve NHS patients, staff, data and facilities whilst others involve healthy volunteers that have no NHS involvement. These include: clinical trials of drugs or drug combinations; other Research Studies; laboratory based studies involving human tissue; and research involving healthy volunteers.
