New e-learning modules on Research Tissue Banks
The HTA and the Health Research Authority (HRA) have worked together on the production of two new eLearning modules on Research Tissue Banks.
Research Tissue Banks – an Introduction is designed to help Research Ethics Committee (REC) members, Research and Development staff, Research Tissue Bank (RTB) managers, Designated Individuals and other staff be aware of the structure of RTBs, the regulations and ethics behind them.
How to ethically review an RTB is a guide for REC members is predominantly designed to support REC members with the ethical review of RTB applications. However, the module may also be of interest to researchers preparing to submit applications.
Both modules are available on the Health Research Authority’s learning management platform.
