Dear Research Colleagues,

As you are aware, an administrative fee applies to the review of all industry-sponsored research projects evaluated by the Hamilton Integrated Research Ethics Board (HiREB), whether funding associated with the research project is administered through St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, McMaster University, or Hamilton Health Sciences.

As of April 1, 2017, the administrative fee for HiREB review of all industry-sponsored research projects will be $3500.00. 

Also, as of April 1, 2017, there will be a fee charged for HiREB Annual Renewals of all industry-sponsored research projects of $300.00.

These fee adjustments align with academic hospital ethical review fees across Canada.

A copy of the official memo is available here.

Thank you for your co-operation and your ongoing support of our research mandate.

If you have questions or require any assistance, please contact me at .
