Ensuring Research Continuity at FSU during COVID-19

March 12, 2021 Update

Research involving in-person conduct can resume based on approval from the Office of the Provost. The procedure to request resumption of research involves completing a COVID-19 Face-to-Face Research Request Form. To request to start or resume research that involves face-to-face interaction, submit a completed Academic Affairs Laboratory Safety Research During COVID-19 Pandemic Request Form.

As stated on the form: Send the completed form along with any additional supporting documentation to the Academic Affairs Director of Laboratory Safety.

Once the form has obtained approval by the Provost’s Office, add it directly to your IRB application.

  • If your application is in the initial review phase, include the approved form as an attachment within the procedures section of your application in Cayuse IRB.
  • If your application has already been reviewed and approved by the IRB, but has been on pause/hold due to the suspension, include the form as an attachment within the procedures section as a revision request within Cayuse IRB. As a reminder, revision requests can be submitted by opening the project within Cayuse – select the blue, ‘new submission’ button and from the drop down select ‘revision’. Complete, certify and submit. 
  • For more information from the IRB on how to upload the Request to Restart F2F Research form, modifications that may be needed in a consent form, etc, please see the  IRB Guidance on Resuming In-Person Research Activities & Consent Modification
