COVID-19 Guidelines for Human Subjects Research

RESTART 2020 for IRB

Restarting face-to-face research in the midst of COVID-19 will require everyone to do their part to help protect participants as well as researchers themselves. Together, we can help stop the spread of COVID-19 by designing new research studies or modifying existing active studies according to the guidelines, which have been approved by the IRB and by SHSU’s legal team.

REQUIREMENT: You are required to use these guidelines while preparing your application or updating already approved studies. Before ANY in-person data collection can begin, you must have IRB approval specifically for the conduct of this type of research.
