During May 2012 Bellberry members attended an in-house education session aimed at increasing knowledge and understanding of the scientific, ethical and safety aspects of reviewing phase 1 trials. The session was facilitated by Nucleus Network and tailored specifically for our medical/science HREC members.

The past year has again seen Bellberry HREC members embrace a variety of educational opportunities sponsored by Bellberry, with a number of members undertaking and successfully completing the Online Ethics Training Course available through Monash University. Five members also attended the Monash University Intensive Research Ethics Course held at Hepburn Springs in December.
