Welcome to SIRB Website

The Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital first established a committee for reviewing of research involving human subjects in 1984. The committee was called “Human Right Committee for Research in humans” and comprised 5-6 members. Subsequently, the component of the committee was changed to comply with the ICH-GCP and CIOMs Guidelines and the new committee was named “Ethics Committee for Research in Humans” in 2000. Because of the increasing number of projects submitted for approval, an additional committee was appointed making a total of 2 committees, which had the term according to the term of the dean. The committees were composed of a chairman, vice chairmen, secretaries, lawyers and lay persons.

The Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital issued Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that were presented by the chairman of the Ethics Committee for Research in Humans and the vice dean for research to the Faculty committee on October 11th, 2004. These were the first SOPs that were implemented by the Faculty.

The current Ethics Committee was appointed according to the latest SOPs (version 7.1). The committee has a 4-year term, concordant to the term of the dean. The chair person is appointed by the dean. In the selection of the committee members, consideration was made on credential, variety of expert fields, gender, and experience. The committees should comprise both male and female members, who are knowledgeable and experienced in various fields of medical science, social science, and relevant law. Furthermore, there must be members who are not employees of the Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital or other faculties within Mahidol University in order to have opinions from lay persons.
