Ethics Advisor

Academic and clinical participants to the NGS-PTL project have already taken part in responsible positions in international biomedical researches including the collection of human samples so that a considerable experience is available within the project with these ethical issues.

In addition, Prof. Fabrizio De Ponti (Full professor of Pharmacology at UNIBO and past president of the Ehtics Committee of the S. Orsola-Malpighi Hospital of Bologna) was appointed as external independent Ethics Advisor to carefully oversee the ethical concerns involved in the project.

Detailed reports about the compliance of the project activities with all relevant ethical and regulatory review necessities will be produced by the Ethics Advisor and submitted to the European Commission together with the periodic reports scheduled within the project.
