A one-time, non-refundable fee of $4,000 Canadian Dollars is required for all ethics reviews for industry funded and/or industry supported studies.

  1. Unfunded studies
  2. Internally funded studies (i.e. studies funded through internal awards/grants from Queen’s University or affiliated hospitals Kingston Health Science Centre and Providence Care Centre) 
  3. Grant funded studies from a public, charitable or not‐for‐profit organization (e.g., Tri-agency, Canadian Cancer Society, Heart and Stoke Foundation)
  4. Studies initiated, authored and/or conducted by Queen’s University affiliated researchers whereby the researcher owns all intellectual property and can alter the research without influence from the funder/not-for-profit organization 

* A Board of Record agreement must be developed for all external REB reviews
