While P3G2 provides guidance on the development of ethico-legal tools and policies for health research, such guidance does not constitute a legal opinion or advice. P3G2 or its staff cannot act as legal counsel. P3G2 can assist with the development of template contractual tools (e.g.: Material/Data Transfer Agreements). Research teams are encouraged to seek independent legal counsel regarding the execution of such agreements.
P3G2 frequently collaborates with scientific teams, IT developers, genetic counsellors, physicians and more, and has some in-house experts in these domains, but P3G2 does not provide advice on scientific aspects of the project, though it can assist with developing other aspects of the research protocol.
P3G2 does not provide any data/biospecimen collection or storage services.
Furthermore, P3G2 does not manage or coordinate the research studies themselves. Ethics submissions and management of correspondence with research ethics committees are undertaken by the research study core team. Similarly, P3G2 does not interact with research participants or undertake recruitment.
