The pandemic has impacted research at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, as a function of the type of research, scholarship and creative activity that is being pursued. This website presents a series of resources to assist faculty members with understanding and addressing these impacts as a function of the type of research:
- On-Campus Laboratory-Based Research
- Human Subject Research
- Field-Based or Off-Campus Research
- Community-Engaged Research
The university encourages all faculty, students, postdocs, and staff to continue to pursue their research, scholarship, and creative work while implementing practices that mitigate transmission of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The Office of Research and Engagement and the UT AgResearch Office remain open and operational, and staff are keeping regular business hours to continue to provide support to the university community.
Anyone engaged in research, scholarship, and creative work on campus or at off-site locations must complete their daily health self-screening check, and if required to self-isolate complete the self-isolation form. Completion of the self-isolation form is a critical step in enabling the university to assist the individual and protect the health of our community.
Implementing safe practices for research, scholarship, and creative activities will help limit the spread of COVID-19 and keep faculty, staff, postdocs, students, and the Knoxville community safe.
