Ethics

All projects to make use of this facility must have biological, radiological and ethical approval prior to commencement.

The project coordinator assigned to your project will assess your project to determine what ethical approvals or licensing requirements apply. The project coordinator will also assist you to attain the correct regulatory approvals, which may come from the University of Sydney, your institution, or both.
