Phased return begins for face-to-face human subject research
Face-to-face interaction with human research participants, prohibited since March due to COVID-19, is now allowed under certain conditions if it can’t be performed remotely and presents a low risk of exposure. Requirements for in-person research involving human subjects include conducting the research in university facilities, complying with all ISU policies related to COVID-19 and establishing a risk mitigation plan approved the lead principal investigator’s department chair or unit director. For more details, see the human subjects section of the COVID-19 & Research FAQ maintained by the Office of the Vice President for Research.
