Bioethics Committee


The regulations contained in different calls for proposals for research funding require that projects involving research involving human subjects, the use of personal data, biological samples of human origin, animal experimentation, biological agents or the use of genetically modified organisms not only comply with the requirements established in each case by law but also have the express authorisation of the Ethics Committee of the Centre where the research is to be carried out.

The University of Cadiz, as a Public Body for Research and Teaching, is aware of its duty and responsibility to society and, consequently and in accordance with article 189 of its Statutes, it constitutes a Bioethics Committee, which responds quickly and effectively to current needs or future needs in order to protect the fundamental rights of people, animal welfare and the environment.

The Committee extends its competence to the field of research using personal data for the purposes set out in Article 1(1)(d), which are subject to confidential processing because they affect the rights and freedoms of individuals, interests linked to the defence and protection of the environment or other constitutionally and legally protected assets.
