Student and staff projects require approval by the NUS Institutional Review Board (IRB) before they can commence. For more information and the relevant forms, see www.nus.edu.sg/irb.
Student projects that qualify for IRB review exemption may be reviewed by the Department Ethics Review Committee (DERC). A guide and the submission forms can be found below:
Examples of the Participation Information Sheet and Consent Form can be found at the IRB website.
All IRB and DERC applications must first go through the DERC Chairperson. Deposit all applications in the Ethics Submission mailbox located at the departmental staff mailboxes. The weekly submission deadline for AY13/14 is 0900 hrs on Friday.
