Institutional Ethics Committee (IEC)

The purpose of institute is to contribute towards the ethical research by establishing a standard, consistent ethical review mechanism for research in various fields of Biotechnology including health & biomedical sciences, environment, agriculture, clinical & medical microbiology and industrial sciences. Significance faculty involvement in research is evident. Therefore, the institution has an official Code of Ethics to check malpractices and plagiarism in research. The IEC ensures that the cardinal principles of research ethics, autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice are considered at every stage, including the planning, conduct and reporting of the proposed studies. Towards the end of research, the IEC shall evaluate the aspects of informed consent process, risk benefit ratio, distribution of burden and benefits, and provisions for appropriate compensation wherever required. The IEC will monitor the research throughout the study through appropriate well documented procedures. To obtain IEC clearance, all research proposals should be submitted to the CIRD.

For Institutional Ethical Clearance, proposals should be submitted to Dr. B. Lal Institute of Biotechnology’s Ethics Committee in the prescribed application format along with all relevant documents.
