Wellcome Trust – Research involving human participants policy
To understand the factors underpinning health and disease and assessing the safety and effectiveness of biomedical and social interventions.
Wellcome will fund research involving human participants that: could lead to sustainable health benefits that can be applied where the research takes place or could have a global public benefit and potential relevance to the health of people anywhere in the world or aims to generate new knowledge where there may be no immediate sustainable health benefit. Where there is no immediate sustainable health benefit, researchers must take extra care to make sure that participants understand the purpose of the research. Researchers based in high-income countries, who are carrying out research in a low- or middle-income country, must explain why they have chosen this location. This policy should be read alongside our Clinical trials policy and our guidance on the responsible conduct of research.
