Bellberry is delighted to announce that its 5th Human Research Ethics Committee has been registered, ahead of an inaugural meeting in July 2014.

In the preparation phase ahead of the formal launch, the Bellberry team has been busy behind the scenes with the recruitment and selection process. All new HREC members are being supported with a training and development programme ahead of launch. This programme includes:
• induction training in Bellberry processes and policies,
• technical support in the virtual ethics collaboration environment.
• observation activities gaining experience in ethics review in existing committees.
• mentor support.

The 5th committee adds further capacity to the Bellberry ethics review process. With Bellberry holding at least one HREC meeting every week, we are able to provide researchers with a 2-week lead time from submission to review
