UCL Biobank Ethics Review Committee

The UCL Biobank Ethical Review Committee (B-ERC) overseas the Research Tissue Bank ethical approval of the UCL/UCLH Biobank for Studying Health and Disease. The Ethical Review Committee for the biobank will review requests for new sample collections and also requests for use of samples/data for research, including those which do not already have ethical approval and ensure they satisfy conditions laid down by NRES for the release of tissues by the Research Tissue Bank. If you wish to start a new sample collection or wish to use existing samples please contact Joanne McDonald (joanne.mcdonald@ucl.ac.uk) for further information. The BERC reports to the UCL/UCLH Clinical Governance Committee and has clear terms of reference.
