As DU continues to response to the impact of COVID-19 on research, the DU campus, and the community, the Office of Research Integrity & Education (ORIE) is responding and implementing procedural changes to continue to protect University of Denver investigators, research participants, and the on-going research projects that are conducted in our labs. The IRB, IACUC, and IBC continue to accept and process submissions while being observant of the guidelines outlined in the DU COVID-19 Protocols for Research, Scholarship, & Creative Work guidance. All PIs and their research staff members must follow the DU COVID-19 guidelines that have been established for reopening research, scholarship, and creative work issued through the Provost's Office.

Please refer to the DU COVID-19 website for additional guidance and information.
