Ethics and research policy

We work with partners and policy makers to deliver a positive environment for research - guiding ethical research practice, influencing regulation and governance structures, and developing policies and guidance for our researchers. The Ethics, Regulation and Public Involvement Committee (ERPIC) provides expert ethical advice to the MRC’s Council on a wide range of issues relating to medical research.
