During the current COVID-19 outbreak, changes to your research studies may be necessary to protect your study participants, your study staff, and yourself. Federal regulatory and CU Boulder Policy requirements must still be met during this time. Any changes in the ways in which you interact with study participants – to include in-person recruitment, Informed Consent, and data collection procedures – must be reviewed and approved by the IRB before being implemented.
As CU moves toward re-opening, please continue to submit any changes that directly affect the conduct of your research study. However, policies and procedures that are implemented by the University and that are not directly related to study conduct should not be added to your research Protocol. If you have questions about what may or may not need to be included in your study documents, please contact the IRB office directly for consultation.
