The Health Research Ethics Board of Alberta (HREBA) is hosted by Alberta Innovates and consists of three committees – the Cancer Committee, the Clinical Trials Committee and the Community Health Committee. These committees provide ethical reviews and ongoing ethical oversight of cancer and community-based research involving humans, their information and biological samples.
HREBA safeguards the rights and welfare of individuals who volunteer to participate in research by ensuring ethical principles have been considered by researchers and applied prior to and throughout the conduct of the research.
While focused on the protection of research participants, HREBA wants to ensure that research maximizes benefit while minimizing harms.
