Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

The JRMO operates in accordance with detailed Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

These SOPs and their associated documents can also be used as models by those engaged in research, in which case local sign-off would normally be required.

Each SOP has been authorised and a master copy is kept in the JMRO. All electronic copies of research and development SOPs are ‘uncontrolled’.

Updates to SOPs are announced in our regular Research News Bulletin.

  • To search for a particular SOP either scroll down the list below, separated into Researcher SOPs and JRMO staff SOPS, or use the numerical list at the left of this page.
  • Alternatively, you can insert a keyword or number into the SEARCH box at the top right of this and all JRMO website pages (just left of the Barts Health logo).

If you have any questions about our SOPs please contact the JRMO’s GCP Team:
