Ethical monitoring process
We ask researchers who apply for BBSRC funding, and the Research Committees who review grant applications, to flag to us any applications that are likely to raise social or ethical issues.
Any such applications are sent to members of the Bioscience for Society Strategy Advisory Panel, who then discuss with the applicant how issues can be resolved. We do not start funding grants until all issues have been resolved.
This process is described in more detail in the following diagram. If you need an accessible version in a different format, please contact email@example.com.
