At HKU/QMH, clinical studies are overseen by the Institutional Review Board of The University of Hong Kong/Hospital Authority Hong Kong West Cluster (HKU/HA HKW IRB).
HKU/HA HKW IRB is an independent committee established jointly by HKU and the Hospital Authority Hong Kong West Cluster (HA HKW) in accordance with the requirements of the ICH GCP and is governed by the two organizations through the Governance Committee (GC).
