​Notice re: Covid-related submissions

Although the HREC final submission date has passed on 24 November, an extended closing date of 9 December 2020 has been agreed upon for COVID-related studies. This hiatus is essential to give our HREC members a well-earned break in light of the increased workload due to the Rapid Review process that had been instituted in response to the urgency of the coronavirus pandemic. We thank the HREC members most sincerely for their unwavering commitment during the past 9 months.

HREC will re-open for submissions on 11 January 2021. For any queries, kindly email Dr Blanche Pretorius at blanchep@sun.ac.za
