NOTICE: We will be updating our WREM application forms on January 27, 2023, which will require the current Project Owner (listed in Collaborators tab) to update the projects within WREM. For more information see our WesternREM page. 
We are currently working off-site. If you need to contact our office, please visit our contact us page and we will get back to you as soon as we are able.

For up-to-date information regarding research during COVID-19 or delays in review, please see our communications page.

On behalf of Western's research ethics boards, we manage the approval and monitoring process for the use of humans in research at the university and its affiliated hospitals and research institutes. All research involving humans conducted by faculty, staff or students at Western or its affiliated hospitals or research institutes must be approved by a Western-sanctioned review board.
