The mission of the Viikki Campus Research Ethics Committee is to review the ethics of studies on farmed and pet animals as well as other vertebrates that fall outside the scope of the Act on the Use of Animals for Experimental Purposes, coordinate and supervise the provision of training in research ethics on the campus, offer consultation in matters relating to research ethics and provide advice for solving research ethics problems on the Campus. Assessing the ethics of medical research on human subjects as well as of studies under the scope of the Act on the Use of Animals for Experimental Purposes falls outside the Committee’s mandate.
