Ph.D. Regulations – Ethics
If a student’s research requires human testing, animal testing, or testing involving materials of human origin, students must add an appendix to their dissertation covering the four options below:
- If a student believes that the project does not require approval by the Helsinki Committee, he or she must explain this in the appendix.
- If a student believes that informed consent is sufficient, he or she must act in accordance with the procedures of the departments affiliated with the university, and report it in the appendix.
- If the project requires approval by the Helsinki Committee, the student must procure such approval in writing. Alternatively, the student may submit a letter to the University’s Ethics Committee and the hospital where the research takes place, in part or in whole, must appeal to the Helsinki Committee.
- Should the research require experiments involving animals, the proposal must also include the approval of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) of Tel Aviv University.
