NHMRC National Scientific Committee
The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) is Australia’s leading expert body for supporting health and medical research.
As part of its work to support a nationally consistent approach to the way human research is conducted, NHMRC is piloting National Scientific Committees (NSCs) to provide advice to researchers on clinical trials involving medical devices and complex genetic research.
The NSCs will provide advice and a report to sponsors and investigators on the scientific merit and integrity of a product information and a research protocol.
This report can then be used as further justification when submitting a human research ethics committee application to commence clinical trials.
During the pilot (ending 30 June 2017) applicants will not be charged for this service.
