Research and Consent under the Human Tissue Act (2004) (Online)

Years: 1,2,3

The University holds a licence from the Human Tissue Authority (HTA) to obtain, store and research human cellular material.  This mandatory two hour course/workshop will introduce you to the Act, including its history, what it means for the University and you as an individual, essential procedures and maintaining compliance.
