Home

 

Institutional Ethics Committee is constituted principally for the purpose of checking whether proposals submitted for research (Ph.D./M.D./ M.S/ D.M/ M.Ch) degree of the institute meet established guidelines as also all research proposals submitted require clearance from the Ethics Committee of the Institute. All the research projects incorporate a section titled “Ethical justification”, for undertaking proposed investigative procedure/therapeutic intervention. Ethics Committee scrutinizes and suggests suitable modifications.

 All clinical trials of new drugs, new actions of existing drugs, and new invasive clinical procedures come under the purview of this Committee. This committee ensures actual implementation of the ethical guidelines and its specific recommendations during conduct of clinical studies. The clearance from committee is necessary even for projects that have been cleared by other institutions/agencies. For research on living animals, the Committee considers the possible clinical potential or substantial advance in knowledge from the proposed animal experiments.
