Townsville research education support and administration (TRESA)


TRESA offers services that help make research happen. Situated at the Townsville Hospital in the James Cook University (JCU) clinical school, TRESA provides research support to all staff of Townsville Hospital and Health Service (THHS). Through collaboration with JCU, TRESA also provides research support to some staff and students at JCU.

Research Ethics and Research Governance are two separate and independent entities. These two different departments are housed within TRESA because in addition to their administrative duties, their staff also undertake the role of research education and support.
