POSTED 3/20/20: Owing to the heightened risk of COVID-19 transmission, the Provost and Vice Provost for Research have stated that “we must reduce laboratory research and other nonessential research activities.” Therefore, although the IRB is moving forward with reviewing and approving protocols, amendments, and renewals, these approvals do NOT supersede the Provost’s directive. The decision as to whether you can proceed with any laboratory research activities during the coronavirus-associated reduction in laboratory research will be made by your Dean.
Visit the IRB COVID-19 FAQs page for more details.
Thank you for taking these limitations into consideration, and please contact the IRB if you have any questions.
