• Research is defined as ‘the attempt to derive generalisable or transferable new knowledge to answer or refine relevant questions with scientifically sound methods’.

It also excludes routine banking of biological samples or data except where this activity is integral to a self-contained research project designed to test a clear hypothesis’.
