• Gene Therapy Advisory Committee (GTAC)

    The functions of this committee have been transferred to four designated NHS Research Ethics Committees within the Health Research Authority.  Applications to GTAC should be made through the NHS Research Ethics Committee Central Booking Service.  Please see the Ethical Approval station for more details.

  • Good Clinical Practice (GCP)

    Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is an ethical and scientific quality standard for designing, conducting and reporting trials that involve the participation of human subjects. The International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) standardised practice across Europe, Japan and the USA.

    The principles of GCP should be applied to any research that involves human participants, their tissues or data.
