Research Governance

Our Research Governance Committee aims to support staff and students in the conduct of high quality research.

The Research Governance Committee (RGC) has developed a number of useful tools for researchers including A Guide to Good Research Practice, face to face training for all new students, online training for all new staff, an audit program and a risk management plan.

In addition, the RGC delivers the Monash Partners accredited ICH Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training in conjunction with the Monash Centre for Health Research and Implementation.

A Guide to Good Research Practice

The purpose of A Guide to Good Research Practice is to ensure that medical research conducted within our School meets the highest scientific and ethical standards.
