The Queensland Eye Institute’s Scientific Committee (QEI-SC) is a fundamental element of research governance for the research activities conducted at QEI, together with the QEI Human Research Ethics Committee, henceforth QEI-HREC (both established during 2010).
The existence and activity of the QEI-SC is essential, as the scientific merit of research projects involving human participants is a pre-requisite for applications to the QEI-HREC.
The QEI-SC will accept proposals, which are prepared using the template provided, submitted electronically to the Chair, who will then distribute the proposal to each member of the SC. Each member will send to the chair their comments, objections and suggestions. The Chair will send to the proponent a list of objections. Upon receiving a response, the Chair will make a decision that will be sent to the SC members for confirmation. Following a final decision, the Chair will prepare and send a formal letter to the proponent.
