Ethics PolicyNovember 21, 2022 2023-04-04 10:22
The need for Institutional Ethics Committee (IECs) in medical Science and life science research establishments resulted from the realization that affirms human rights or any life as a prerogative of all members of society. This has been emphasized under the Statement of General Principles in Biomedical research involving human participants (http://icmr.nic.in/human ethics.htm#GuideIines) pertaining to precaution and risk minimization. It is mandatory that all proposals on biomedical research involving human participants should be cleared by an appropriately constituted Institutional Ethics Committee (IEC), also referred to as Institutional Review Board (IRB). Desh Bhagat University, Mandi Gobindgarh in accordance with the ICMR and UGC guidelines, has established such an Institutional Ethical Committee.
