The Ethics in Human Experimentation Committee was established by the Vice-Chancellor in October 1986 to oversee the ethics of experimental research projects involving human species, proposed by members of the University. The initial composition of the Committee included 'a laywoman, a layman, a minister of religion, a lawyer and a medical graduate' (as specified by National Health and Medical Research Council guidelines), as well as a philosopher, a psychologist and a biological anthropologist. Prior to its establishment, the Clinical Research Committee of the John Curtin School of Medical Research had performed the function of an ethics committee.
