Research Ethics Board

St. Thomas University endorses the principles set out in the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS), thus, it has charged its Research Ethics Board (REB) with ensuring that all research involving human participants conducted by anyone employed by or representing St. Thomas University comply with the REB Policy

Before a researcher may proceed with their study, they must submit a complete application to the REB and receive written confirmation that the design of their study is aligned with TCPS guidelines.
