[NEWS] The Research Ethics Committee welcomes four new members

On The June 7, 2023

Established in 2022, the Université de Lyon’s Research Ethics Committee (CER-UdL) supports researchers who wish to ensure the ethics of their research protocols (except for research involving human subjects). It will welcome four new members at the start of the 2023 academic year.

The CER-UdL complements the existing ethics committees and is operationally attached to the Université de Lyon ComUE. It addresses non-interventional human research protocols, i.e., protocols that do not involve human subjects or animal testing.
