As a collaborative effort on campus, DU implemented policies and procedures that addressed the challenges of COVID-19 and continues to implement precautionary efforts to further protect our DU community through regular, ongoing testing.  

The Office of Research Integrity & Education (ORIE) continues to work with investigators who are currently conducting research on campus and in the community to ensure that approved research projects and any new projects can be conducted safely either in person or remotely.  Fully vaccinated DU personnel and students may conduct in-person research on campus, including fieldwork and within private facilities and homes. DU-affiliated staff are asked to take reasonable precautions such as wearing face coverings and continue to follow the DU COVID-19 protocol based on the current alert level posted on the COVID-19 website.  For more information about COVID-19 while conducting human subjects research, please contact the DU IRB Office through
