Welcome back everyone! We hope that you have had a happy and safe Christmas and New Year.

The Bellberry office re-opened on 3 Jan and we held our first HREC meeting of 2017 on 4 Jan.  While the summer holidays are normally a quieter time of year, 2016/17 is off to a roaring start!  December saw double the number of expected HREC meetings, and January has been busy too.  As always, please contact the Bellberry office if you need any assistance with your study submission.

New Year New Committees

In response to your needs, Bellberry are pleased to announce that two new HREC Committees (G & H) have been approved by the NHMRC and will be launched shortly. Bellberry held over 80 Committee meetings last year and the new Committees will ensure that going forward in 2017 two meetings can be held each week.

National Scientific Committees

Bellberry is now hosting the NHMRC National Scientific Review Committees for the areas of Complex Genetic Research and Medical Devices.  Please contact us if you would like any further information on this support service.  Further information can be found at nationalscientificcommittees.org.au

We look forward to working with you in 2017 which we hope will be another exciting and challenging year.

Kylie Sproston, CEO Bellberry
