ETHICAL REVIEW COMMITTEE
UI-UCH ETHICAL REVIEW COMMITTEE MANDATE
The mandate of the UI/UCH ERC is to provide ethical and regulatory oversight of research that involves human subjects by:
Respect for persons
Individuals should be treated as autonomous agents.
Persons with diminished autonomy are entitled to protection.
Persons are treated in an ethical manner not only by respecting their decisions and protecting them from harm, but also by making efforts to secure their well-being.
Fairness in distribution (select participants equitably)
Who ought to receive the benefits of research and bear its burdens?
Prof. C. O. Falade
