Office of Research Ethics

Research conducted at the University of Waterloo has societal and global impact. Applying ethical considerations to the design, implementation, and dissemination establishes and maintains public trust in the research community more broadly. 

Waterloo’s Research Ethics Boards and Animal Care Committee facilitate research and the other processes that support it. There are increasing requirements from funding agencies and publishers to address ethical implications in grant applications, data management plans, and knowledge mobilization activities. The staff in the Office of Research Ethics can help you think about and navigate these ethical issues.
