Our Ethics committee

The Ethical Group Medical Research (GERM)

The GHPSJ has set up a specific ethical research structure, the Medical Research Ethics Group (GERM), chaired by Professor Elie Azria (head of the maternity ward).
This ethical group, created in November 2008, brings together not only doctors and pharmacists, but also user and philosopher representatives.
The GERM is therefore responsible for issuing ethical opinions on research projects submitted by the institution staff.

  • It gives GHPSJ investigators all useful advice on ethics and research.
  • It ensures that the information and safety of the patients participating to medical research complies to the regulatory framework.
  • It also ensures compliance with the regulatory framework.

All in house researches receives an ethical opinion, independently from their regulatory framework (Jardé law or not).
