Streamlined Research Ethics Review System

CTO is leading the movement for a single provincial ethics review for multi-centred clinical trials. It’s all part of enhancing the climate for clinical research in Ontario.

The CTO Streamlined Research Ethics Review System (SRERS) provides an efficient approach to conducting research ethics reviews for clinical research in Ontario. The SRERS supports any single ‘CTO Qualified’ Research Ethics Board (REB) in Ontario to provide ethical review and oversight for multiple research sites participating in the same clinical trial.
