Ethical and biosafety requirements
Grant recipients and their organizations are responsible for observing all ethical guidelines concerning experimentation with human or animal subjects or the handling of biohazardous material. If your project involves human subjects or biological materials, you will need to provide the necessary certificates.
Approval certificates are not required at the time of application, but successful applicants must submit all required approvals before we can release the grant funds.
