The REB has two primary roles -- educative and review.
In its educative role, the REB serves the UFV research community as a consultative body and thus, contributes to education in research ethics.
In its review role, the REB has the responsibility for independent, multidisciplinary review of the ethics of research to determine whether the research should be permitted to start or to continue.
The committee has the authority to approve, reject, propose modifications to, or terminate all proposed or ongoing research involving humans within the institution’s jurisdiction based on the ethical considerations as set forth in the Research Ethics Policy. The REB is considered a delegation of the President’s Office at UFV.
