Leiden University and LUMC and others to evaluate WMO

On 28 September 2022, ZonMW commissioned a consortium made up of the Erasmus University/Erasmus MC, Leiden University/LUMC, and research agency Pro Facto from Groningen to carry out the fourth evaluation of the Dutch Medical Research (Human Subjects) Act (WMO) and the Central Committee on Research Involving Human Subjects (CCMO). ZonMw has undertaken the commission on behalf of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. All forms of research with people who are eligible for the WMO should be evaluated beforehand and must adhere to strict requirements.

This is a prestigious assignment in which health lawyers and ethicists from Rotterdam and Leiden will be collaborating. It fits seamlessly with the collaboration between both universities and the TU Delft.

The project must be concluded within a year. ZonMw has awarded a grant of €280,000 for the evaluation.

Aart Hendriks (administrative law) and Mirjam Sombroek (private law) will be involved in the project on behalf of Leiden University. Lawyer and ethicist Marleen Eijkholt (Ethics and Health Care Law) will be participating on behalf of the LUMC. Hendriks will oversee the legal research part of the evaluation.
