Townsville research education support and administration (TRESA)


TRESA offers services that help make research happen. Situated on Level 2 the Townsville Hospital in the Townsville Institute for Clinical Research, TRESA provides research support to all staff of Townsville Hospital and Health Service (THHS). Through collaboration with James Cook University (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 as, in addition to their administrative duties, their staff also undertake the role of research education and support.

Please note that ethics and governance applications for Queensland  are now created, compiled, and submitted through Ethics Review Manager (ERM). Online forms is now read only. Do not create or upload and documents to Online Forms.
