Cancer Division sets up governance group
26 February 2013
The UCLH Cancer Division has established a group to review research that is not a clinical trial before it is submitted to the Joint Research Office.
The ‘Applied Health Research in Cancer Governance Group’ will provide governance review and support for researchers.
Please note: this is for pre-submissions to the Joint Research Office.

The group reviews the following types of study:
* Novice researchers: Nurses/Allied Health Professionals thinking about undertaking a research project and requiring advice
* Nurses/Allied Health Professional/and or others performing research projects as part of an educational programme e.g. MSc, PhD

* Patient Focused and Health Service Cancer Care research where UCLH is a site within a peer reviewed, externally funded single or multi-centre study
The group fulfils 2 main functions at 2 different stages of the study’s submission process:
1. Advice and support at early stage of study planning (pre-ethics submission)
2. A required step in the R&D submission process (before SSI can be signed):
