Reminder for UF Faculty: Protocol Compliance

As you all know, the research conditions at UF are not exactly normal as we resume research on campus. It is particularly critical during this time that researchers comply with their approved protocols and not assume that restrictions due to the pandemic automatically grant any kind of flexibility when complying with approved protocols. If pandemic-related restrictions (or any other factors) impact protocol compliance, faculty should contact applicable oversight offices (e.g., IRB, IACUC, OCR, etc.) to ask if they need to submit a modification request before deviating from their protocol.

Please encourage faculty and staff to review their approved protocols. For questions, please contact UF Division of Research Operations and Services at 352-392-1582.
