School of Medicine Undergraduate and Taught MSc Research Ethics Committee

Welcome to the School of Medicine Undergraduate and Taught MSc Research Ethics Committee portal. 

The UCD School of Medicine Undergraduate and Taught Masters Research Ethics Committee (UTMREC-SM) is constituted as a committee of the UCD School of Medicine and as a sub-committee of the UCD Human Research Ethics Committee - Sciences (UCD-HREC-LS). The Committee will review applications for ethical approval, or exemption from full ethical review, for research conducted by registered undergraduate and graduate taught students on behalf of UCD-HREC-LS.

Here we have assembled information and resources which we hope will assist you to ensure that your research is conducted to the highest ethical standards and to ensure that we have appropriate procedures in place to demonstrate same.
