Research Governance

The Research Governance Team is available to advise University of Bristol staff and students on how to set up and conduct research projects that involve human participants, their tissue and/or data.

We can help with the ethics and governance requirements of studies of this nature:

  • at the time of grant writing and when funding is awarded;
  • agreeing research governance sponsorship arrangements;
  • advising on the need and process for ethical review;
  • helping with indemnity provision;
  • advising on the need and process for other regulatory approvals;
  • providing relevant governance training for you and your team;
  • ensuring standards that enhance research integrity.
