If your project involves the taking of blood samples, you should also refer to the information sheet and consent form for the taking of blood samples - Annex D1 (PDF-83kb)

You may find it useful to use a 'Health & Lifestyle' questionnaire as part of your study - Example Questionnaires (PDF-115kb) for male and female participants can be tailored for your use.

Initially YOU MUST speak with your Department Ethics Rep, ensuring that they are satisfied for you to submit an application - Rainer Cramer (Chemistry), Julie Lovegrove (Food) and Parastou Donyai (Pharmacy) and for them to decide whether it should go down the Internal Approval route or be submitted to UREC.

IT IS NOT FOR YOU TO MAKE THAT DECISION YOURSELF

Send in a word document, via email to Barbara Parr b.l.parr@reading.ac.uk completed copies of:-

  • the correct Application form (internal approval only or requiring UREC approval),
  • Checklist (Appendix A)
  • Project Submission Form (Appendix B)
  • appropriate Consent form (Appendix C)
  • Completed appropriate Internal Reviewer cover sheet AND
  • Any information sheet for participants
  • any supporting papers

These must be sent a minimum of at least 2 weeks prior to any submission deadlines. She will arrange for it to be reviewed by an internal reviewer. Once reviewed the applicant must arrange for a single-sided hard copy of the amended and completed application form and internal reviewer cover sheet to be signed by:-

  • all named investigators
  • the Internal Reviewer
  • their Head of Department
  • signed by Sarah Hargreaves (if using Hugh Sinclair Unit)
