We go right to the top of the Health Research Authority and are honoured to bring you Sir Prof Terence Stephenson, Chair of the HRA, and previous Chair of the GMC, Dean of University College London and Consultant Paediatrician.

Seeking ethics approval can be challenging, especially if a Fellow is doing so for the first time. Sir Terence lays out the HRA infrastructure and the intentions and objectives of their Ethics Committees. We discuss common mistakes and how to overcome the associated challenges.
