Interdisciplinary Committee on Ethics in Human Research (ICEHR)



As of September 1, 2016 ICEHR will no longer issue hardcopy letters to researchers. Correspondence, including results of review and approval letters, will be issued by email ONLY after this date. Researchers can also access letters issued from their Researcher Portal account from the Attachments tab of the relevant application. 


The ICEHR normally receives proposals for research in the social sciences, humanities, sciences and engineering, including some health-related research in these areas, originating at the St. John’s campus.

Such research is usually from researchers in the Faculties of Arts, Business Administration, Education, Engineering and Applied Science, Science; the Schools of Human Kinetics and Recreation, Music, Social Work; Institutes and Special Divisions (excluding the Health Research unit and the Centre for Applied Health Research); and the University Library and Counselling Centre.

Other Research Ethics Boards

If your research does not fit into any of these categories, you should look at the websites for the Health Research Ethics Authority (HREA) or the Grenfell Campus Research Ethics Board
