Research Integrity, Ethics & Governance

The ethics team handles all queries related to ethics at Lancaster University, including whether ethical review is necessary for your research and whether this review needs to be conducted internally or externally. The team provides support to the Faculty Research Ethics Committees, which reviews and approves research ethics applications, and the overarching University Research Ethics Committee which oversees ethical issues and processes.

Please see the contacts section for details of your faculty contact, along with links to each Research Ethics Committee.
