Information for Clinical Researchers

Our institution ensures that all research is performed ethically, in accordance with the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans. 

All research-related accounts must be opened through the Research Institute.  In order to open a research account, you must first submit the documentation required to become an affiliate of the Research Institute of St. Joe’s Hamilton.  Affiliation is required in order to access and receive support for administrative services such as IT, finance, contract review, and the Father Sean O’Sullivan research awards.

Obtaining affiliation is a simple process.  Please complete the affiliation form and send it along with your Canadian Common CV (preferably completed to CIHR guidelines) to Adam Weerdenburg.

The Hamilton Integrated Research Ethics Board is a jointly constituted board of St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, Hamilton Health Sciences and McMaster University's Faculty of Health Sciences.  To view the required documentation and information, please visit the HiREB website.

HiREB requires proof of completion of Good Clinical Practice training in order to gain approvals.  Tri-Council Policy Statement training is optional yet recommended.  There are links to both types of training as well as Standard Operating Procedures on mystjoes.
