Termination of the RWH Animal Ethics Committee

The RWH Animal Ethics Committee (AEC) was disbanded on 1 July 2021.

This decision was made upon recommendation from the AEC and having regard to the limited number of animal projects undertaken at the Hospital over the past years and the future support available to RWH from The University of Melbourne (UoM) Animal Ethics Committee.

The UoM animal license covers animal work of staff members of the University Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at The Royal Women’s Hospital and other RWH staff members who have an honorary appointment with UoM.
