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:

  1. If a student believes that the project does not require approval by the Helsinki Committee, he or she must explain this in the appendix.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
