HREBA Streamlines and Simplifies Review Fees

The Health Research Ethics Board of Alberta (HREBA) charges $4000 for the initial full board review, or $1000 for the initial delegated review, of an industry funded study.

All industry funded studies, regardless of their initial approval date, will not be charged any additional fees for changes e.g. modifications, annual renewals, closures.

HREBA Reviewing All Cancer Studies

The HREBA Cancer Committee is now receiving all new adult and pediatric cancer studies from across Alberta which require ethics review.  This significant step continues the harmonization of the work of Alberta’s research ethics boards.

Studies which have been approved by other ethics boards in the province will be transferred to HREBA during April 2016.  More information is available in this background document.
