If your research project requires ethical review and approval by the University (or you have a query about a potential application), please send this directly to the relevant committee (and not to the Central University Research Ethics Committee, which does not review or approve individual applications).
If you have a concern about an Oxford University research project with which you have been involved, please speak to the relevant researcher, who will do their best to answer your query. The researcher should acknowledge your concern within 10 working days and give you an indication of how they intend to deal with it. If you remain unhappy or wish to make a formal complaint, please contact the chair of the appropriate research ethics committee at the University of Oxford (or the University’s Clinical Trials and Research Governance (CTRG) team, in the case of studies that required prior review by CTRG) via the committee contacts listed above.
If a committee chair receives a formal complaint, they may delegate the matter for appropriate action, including referring the matter to CUREC. The chair may otherwise determine the process for dealing with the case as they consider fit.
