Project and Ethics-Biosafety Approval

 
Description

Titles of Research Grant/Contract and Ethics/Biosafety Application
To facilitate the linkage between research projects and ethics/biosafety approvals it is recommended that the title of the project and the ethics/biosafety application are identical, or at least as similar as possible. Where necessary, Post-Award staff will seek clarification from the lead Chief Investigator (CI).

When to Submit the Ethics/Biosafety Application
When an application is submitted for internal or external research funding for a project that will require ethics or biosafety approval, the lead CI should apply for the ethics/biosafety approval as soon as practicable. At least two months should be allowed for approval of ethics/biosafety applications.

Notify the Post-award Team of the Ethics/Biosafety Approval
When a new ethics/biosafety approval is obtained the lead CI should email a copy of the approval to Post-Award (research.postaward@mq.edu.au) together with details of the research project to which it relates. Post-Award staff will link the ethics/biosafety approval to the relevant project record and will notify the funding body, if required.

Research Covered by Existing Ethics/Biosafety Approval(s)
When a new research project is covered by existing ethics/biosafety approval(s) the lead CI should provide details via the acceptance process. Post-Award will link the ethics/biosafety approval to the relevant project record and will notify the funding body, if required.
