The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) has designated that all research activities involving in-person contact with research participants may resume after submission and approval of COVID-19 protective procedural documents.
The HRPP strongly encourages any human subjects research that can be conducted without in-person contact to continue in that manner. However, the HRPP is removing the previous restrictions on the types of research that qualify to apply for approval to resume in-person research. Please note that this is subject to change based on public health and safety considerations on campus and the larger community.
Please note that all investigators will be required to keep contact tracing logs of which participants are on campus and when. Detailed information about how to apply to resume in-person research can be found on the IRB website.
