All, because of the growing concern about COVID-19 spread, the university is considering suspending in-person human subject research (HSR). No decision has yet been made, but could be made shortly. Suspension would not affect remote HSR or on-campus/in-field non-HSR research.

By tomorrow, if you are currently conducting in-person HSR or plan to start in-person HSR during spring semester, please send me an email. The email should indicate:

  1.  The research project that includes in-person HSR
  2.  The nature of the in-person HSR
  3.  How suspending the in-person HSR aspect would affect the overall project
