Animal Research Ethics

The Research Development and Integrity (RDI) office at UNE is committed to complying with the highest standard of ethics and research integrity. The University's Code of Conduct for Research outlines what is expected from everyone engaged in research at UNE with standards of responsible and ethical conduct.

Approval for research involving animals is granted by the the Animal Ethics Committee (AEC). The Committee uses guidelines set out in the Australian Code for the Care and Use of Animals for Scientific Purposes (PDF).
