Human Research Ethics Board (HREB)
The HREB has two primary roles -- to educate and review.
In its educative role, the HREB serves the UFV research community as a consultative body thereby contributing to education in research ethics.
In its review role, the HREB has the responsibility for independent, multidisciplinary review of the ethics of research to determine whether the research should be permitted to start or to continue.
The committee has the authority to approve, reject, propose modifications to, or terminate all proposed or ongoing research involving humans within the institution’s jurisdiction based on the ethical considerations as set forth in the Research Ethics Policy. The HREB is considered a delegation of the President’s Office at UFV.
