Research Involving Human Subjects IRB

Dear research community,

Due to ongoing events, the IRB unfortunately must continue to keep measures in place to ensure that in-person human subjects research is safe for participants and research personnel during the COVID resurgence. However, we understand that the current process can be burdensome, and we might be under these conditions for the entirety of the fall semester.

Therefore, we are making changes to the process for approval of in-person research to relieve some of those burdens on PIs and departments. The safety plan is now integrated into the application. There is no longer a secondary document for you to fill out or have signed. Please be as detailed as you can in your answers to these questions within the application to minimize revisions.

Please also continue to use the COVID specific in-person consent form template for in-person research. It can now be found with the other consent templates.

For research that was paused or halted, you must still complete a Request of Change to resume/add/change to in-person procedures.

Please know that we are constantly evaluating guidance from the CDC, state and local government, CU system, and the Chancellor and will update our policies as soon we are able as conditions change.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
