Science in society:

Ethical monitoring process

We ask researchers who apply for BBSRC funding and the committees who review grant applications to flag to us any applications that are likely to raise social or ethical issues. Any such applications are sent to members of the Bioscience for Society Strategy Panel, who then discuss with the applicant how issues can be resolved. We do not start funding grants until all issues have been resolved.

This process is described in more detail in the following diagram.
