Completing your application
Each applicant will receive an email from BioGrid after submitting the application. Click on the link in the received email; your agreement to BioGrid Terms and Conditions is required before your application will progress.
Terms & Conditions
Each custodian of the databases you have selected will be notified about your request. They will review your project details and decide either to approve your access to their database or may contact you for further information.
If your project has current ethical approval from an accredited Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) your application will bypass the HREC review process. Acceptance of BioGrid Australia’s Terms and Conditions of Data Access, and the approval of all relevant data custodians, is still required.
If your project requires ethical review and approval, two members of the BioGrid Australia Expert Scientific Review Panel overseen by Melbourne Health will evaluate your research project regarding scientific quality and the potential impact of the research. Once your project has received two independent scientific reviews with a score of 3 or above, your project will be submitted to Melbourne Health HREC for ethical review.
All research projects without ethical approval must be scientifically evaluated then submitted for ethical review before a project can be given approval to commence. The Melbourne Health Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) provides ethical oversight for projects without ethical approval in the BioGrid Access Request System..
After your access has been approved by all relevant parties, a database administrator will create logins and assign access to approved databases for your project. The login details will be sent to each applicant via email.
You can now start analysing the data by using the tools provided by BioGrid. What can you do after you receive your login?
