COVID-19 Guidance for the UConn Research Community

UConn's Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) has created a separate resource page with regularly updated information for the research community at UConn and UConn Health. Visit COVID-19 Research Guidance page for resources, messaging from the Vice President for Research, and FAQs related to the conduct of research in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Latest Update

The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) has developed new guidance related to resuming human subjects research. The guidance outlines the minimum safety procedures that must be in place in order for UConn and UConn Health investigators to be approved by the OVPR to reopen or initiate new human subjects research. Principal investigators (PIs) must tailor their safety plans to meet the needs of each individual research situation.

Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) is available to answer safety related questions from PIs. If you have safety related questions, please email ehs@uconn.edu if your human subject research activities are conducted at the Storrs or regional campuses or call (860) 679-2723 if these activities are taking place at UConn Health.
