Canadian Cancer Trials Group Bulletins

Ethics Regulatory


Ethics Research Associates

As previously announced, effective February 1st, centres will be assigned one Ethics Research Associate for all of their Canadian Cancer Trials Group-coordinated trials, including Phase I and Phase II IND trials. The Ethics Research Associate assigned to a centre will be the primary ethics contact for all ethics-related issues (regardless of trial affiliation or disease site). We hope this will establish an ideal working relationship with centres by improving communication and maintaining an open dialogue.

We would like to emphasize that while Ethics Research Associate assignments are changing, current ethics practices remain unchanged and centres should continue to operate accordingly. Ethics Research Associate centre assignments can be found on the Ethics and Regulatory Affairs site under the heading "Ethics Research Associate Centre Assignments (NEW)" or by clicking here http://www.ctg.queensu.ca/private/compliance/ethics/centre_assignments.html.
