Dr. Warlito C. Vicente, the Chairperson of the RHRDC XI, welcomed the participants by challenging them to develop researchers with both scientific and ethical soundness. Dr. Ricardo M. Manalastas, Jr. and Dr. Milagros M. Viacrucis were the resource speakers for the training which was composed of various lecture sessions and workshops. The primary objective of the training is for RECs to establish and maintain independence and competence following the international and national guidelines. This training is also one of the basic requirements for the institution in their pursuit to apply for PHREB accreditation.
The REMB XI, the regional arm of the Philippine Health Research Ethics Board (PHREB), aims to assist institutions in the implementation of policies and development of quality assurance in the review of RECs in Davao Region and its neighboring regions.
