Research ethics and animal testing ethics

If you are informed about research ethics, you can ask the right questions about what is appropriate or inappropriate in research. Research ethics is about both legislation and rules and good research practice.

Ethical review

Are you planning to do research that involves people or the processing of personal data? If so, you may need to seek ethical approval.

Informed consent

Research on humans is normally only permissible if the participants have agreed to participate in the study.

 

Handling personal data

Research often involves handling data that can be linked in some way to living individuals. The Personal Data Act regulates the management of such data.

Biobank research

Every year, large numbers of biological samples are deposited in biobanks. This usually takes place for clinical purposes that benefit the patient, but the samples may also be used in research.
