The Canadian Blood Services Research Ethics Board (REB) ensures that research involving the participation of humans meets current research ethics standards. The REB reviews all research involving human participants conducted by or on behalf of Canadian Blood Services, including all research involving personal information or biologic materials collected by Canadian Blood Services. The REB also advises Canadian Blood Services on bioethical issues inherent in the research reviewed.
