McGill University Health Center’s SMAART team is dedicated to the highest
ethical standards in research. Each and every study undertaken by the team
must be submitted to the Research Ethics Board of the MUHC.
It is the responsibility of the Research Ethics Board to apply high ethical
standard to its health care research. Before any studies can be conducted the
Research Ethics Board ensures that the study is safe and scientifically and
ethically sound. The SMAART team upholds these guiding ethical principles.
