Catherine McCarthy | Compliance Officer - Nagoya Protocol

McCarthy, Catherine

The Ethics and Governance Office (EGO) includes Carol Smee (Regulatory Compliance Officer), Joanne Doleman (Research Governance Manager) George Martin (Research Governance Officer) and myself. We are responsible for advising members of Sanger Institute staff about compliance with the Human Tissue Act, Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act, the Nagoya Protocol and associated Institute policies. We help achieve compliance through the initiation, administration and development of internal processes, and communicate regulatory and policy requirements using a variety of means, including team talks, induction and training sessions, and face-to-face meetings.

My role is currently focused on the implementation of the Nagoya Protocol and ensuring that the Sanger Institute staff are compliant with the EU and UK regulations through the use of the above means. Should you wish to enquire how the Nagoya Protocol may affect your work please feel free to contact me.
