UTAR Research Ethics
All research conducted by UTAR staff involving the use of human/animal subjects, human tissues, or personal data must be reviewed and approved by UTAR Scientific and Ethical Review Committee (SERC). All proposed research requiring ethical review must obtain approval before the research is initiated. The UTAR SERC would not entertain retrospective reviews.
Applications for ethical approval of research projects/protocols shall be submitted to UTAR SERC via IPSR. The closing date for all applications will be the first day of each month, or the next working day if the first day falls on a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday.
