Currently, Research and Ethics committee issued 386 approval letters for the research proposals, 7 more proposals are currently under review of the committee members.
All proposals were classified as:
On-going (active research in the phase of data collection, data analysis, writing of the results and evaluation of findings, preparation of the final report)
Stagnant/On-hold (paused projects due to the lack of resources/patient recruitment)

Deleted (abandoned, withdrawn by investigators, discontinued).
Detailed statistics for the departments is presented in the table below, as well as graphs showing the number of approvals in each department, number of completed projects and number of on-going research projects.
