Protocol Submission & Administration

Welcome to the Protocol review website for the Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine.  

This website will administer all applications for postgraduate research (as well as research for non degree purposes) for scientific review at the Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine.

All studies will undergo scientific and ethics review simultaneously.

All researchers are required to familiarize themselves with the Research Policies and Procedures. This information can be found as follows: http://research.ukzn.ac.za/Policies.aspx. Studies may not begin without postgraduate and full ethical approval. In addition, following full approval, any changes and amendments to this application must be approved by the postgraduate and Biomedical Research Ethics Committees before implementation. Failure to comply with these requirements is a breach of the UKZN and national ethics requirements and may lead to disciplinary action.
