What University Research Ethics Committee members say about their role:

"The thing I like best about this role is it feels like we are doing something genuinely valuable, not tied to the pressures of performance or ‘success’. The aim is always to work with applicants to find ways of keeping the interests of research participants centre stage, respecting their positions and knowledge. For me this isn’t about bureaucracy for the sake of it, it is about making sure our research is safe for all concerned, from researcher through to participants, and not exploitative."

"Having a different perspective can assist our colleagues across the University in making their research more robust, effective, efficient and safe."

"It exposes me to a wider range of research than I usually encounter within my own research activities It feels useful. I gain satisfaction by being part of a system that helps researchers, particularly research students, get better at their work."

"I learn about interesting research that is undertaken in Liverpool and to liaise with colleagues from different faculties and groups across the University."

"It has given me insights into how to improve and strengthen ethical aspects of my own research applications."

"The Committee include a good variety of members and this helps to encourage some excellent thoughtful discussion and has also taught me a lot when looking at research applications. The Chair is also excellent. It is really valuable committee which is committed to research integrity."
