******Notice to Human Subjects Researchers******
Eastern Illinois University’s IRB is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and at this time, deems person-to-person contact between researchers and their participants to be an unnecessary risk to human subjects. Therefore, effective immediately all in-person interactions with human subjects must be suspended.
Research activities that involve no face-to-face interactions with subjects may continue. Modifications to research given an ‘exempt’ determination by the IRB do not need to be reported unless they change the exempt determination.
EIU’s IRB will continue to review and approve protocol submissions.
For further information please contact the Compliance Coordinator at 581-8576 or Jay Bickford, IRB chair at 581-7881.
