The courses outlined below are fundamental to understanding how we conduct research to ensure compliance with the various research governance frameworks, guidelines, legislation and standards of good practice.  The Research Ethics course and Good Research Practice course should be completed by all staff and students within 6 months of starting at LSHTM and repeated at a minimum every three years.  Good Clinical Practice and Working with Human Tissue are specific courses to be taken if you are working on clinical trials or working in the labs on human material.
