Governing Agencies and Ethics Review Structure

The Bangladesh Medical Research Council (BMRC) is responsible for the review and approval of all health research being conducting in Bangladesh. The BMRC consists of three other reviewing committees; The Scientific Review Committee, The Executive Committee, and the National Research Ethics Committee. Each project proposal that is approved by the Scientific Review Committee must get ethical clearance before funding by BMRC.
