Research proposals advance through two mandatory stages of review and approval processes. The first approval is an administrative approval from the GRH research committee (GRH RC). Receiving the GRH RC approval permits your application to be reviewed by THREB (Tri-Hospital Research Ethics Board). If your research does not involve human subjects in the study, THREB review is not required. GRH RC and THREB approvals are both required prior to initiation of the research project.

Please consider the following meeting dates and corresponding due dates when planning your research application schedule.

Please view the THREB meeting schedule.
