On February 19, 2020, the DOH Drug Treatment and Rehabilitation Center – Dagupan Research Ethics Committee (DOH DTRC Dagupan REC) received the good news of being granted Level 2 Accreditation by the Philippine Health Research Ethics Board thru the Regional Ethics Monitoring Board – 1, valid for 1 year.

Despite being one of the youngest member institutions of the Region 1 Health Research and Development Consortium, who’d became a member on May 2018, the committee which is headed by the Chair, Mr. Eric Vincent R. Maminta thru the help of the Dr. Ronnie Salvador (Chairman of the Research Committee) and with the support of Dr. Delfin Gubatan Jr (Chief of Hospital), managed to establish their own Research Ethics Committee at a short period of time. They initially applied to REMB-1 on April 4, 2019 and after complying with the accreditors’ comments and recommendations, they have been granted the provisional Level 2 accreditation. As Level 2 Accredited, the DOH DTRC Dagupan REC can now review all types of research except clinical trials required for FDA registration of new drugs, and post marketing studies. These may entail more than minimal risk to human participants involved on the research.

The Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD), thru the Regional Health Research and Development Consortium implemented the Regional Research Fund (RRF) to encourage and support the conduct of health research in the local level. Thru the RRF, young researchers are given the chance to develop and conduct their studies with the help of the RHRDC Technical Review Board (TRB) members who evaluates the technical aspects of the projects. In 2015, the PCHRD conducted a series of technical review training workshops in the different clusters of RHRDCs whereby the participants requested for a manual of operations for the TRB of the different consortia, thus, the creation of the TRB Manual of Operations. This manual was released on August 2018 during the PNHRS Week Celebration. The MOP hoped to simplify and standardize the TRB operations across the 16 consortia in the country.

Further, On December 2 – 3, 2019, the Region 1 Health Research and Development Consortium (R1HRDC)
