COVID-19 Research Continuity Planning for the University of Utah: April 15 – April 24

The Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) remains operational as we continue to closely monitor the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. 

Here are our most recent research community updates: 

  • Our campus response to COVID-19 will be stronger with a central repository and communications across all researchers conducting COVID-related research.Please check to see if your COVID-related research project is already captured at the COVID-19 research activities page.If it’s not listed,please fill out the VPR COVID-19 web formbelow to be added to the databaseand the mailing list for the 3i weekly COVID research newsletter.
  • The Office of Research Participant Advocacy has created a webpage for volunteerswho are interested in participating in COVID-19 research from home.
  • As a reminder, all undergraduate studies have been moved to an online platform for the summer 2020 semester. In partnership with the Office of the Vice President for Research, a memo was sent outby the Office of Academic Affairs in regards to student research activities on campus. Consistent with the move to online student services, undergraduate research must also be conducted remotely.We realize that this maybe a constraint for some mentors that conduct laboratory, clinical, or field research. However, our student’s safety is our highest priority and responsibility, and we hope you can accommodate the need for alternative research training opportunities during these extraordinary circumstances.

Thank you for all of your input as we strive to provide needed information and guidance on the VPR website as quickly as possible.We appreciate all of your hard work to keep research operations running smoothly as much as possible during these challenging events.
