The Research Ethics Office (REO) provides effective, integrated support for and administration of all aspects of the ethics review and approval process for research involving human participants and research, teaching and testing involving animals.

The REO website contains information about ethical review at the University of Alberta, including:

  • institutional, national and international guidelines for the ethical conduct of research with human participants and animal subjects.
  • the lifecycle of an ethics application – When is ethics review required? How does the process work? Where do I submit an application and how do I receive approval? 
  • training and resource materials for research ethics requirements and using the online system.

For guidance documents and technical assistance for using the Research and Ethics Management Online (REMO) system, please visit the Education, Training and User Support section of our website.
