Researching a Global Pandemic

Researchers across a wide variety of disciplines at the University of Michigan are using their expertise to address the global COVID-19 pandemic.

"These are indeed challenging times, but I am confident the generation of scientific knowledge across the University of Michigan will play a critical role as we work together to find solutions to this pandemic," said Rebecca Cunningham, U-M vice president for research.

COVID-19 Research Prioritization Committee

The universitywide committee that reviews and prioritizes COVID-related research projects is no longer operational, effective June 12, 2020. If you are proposing lab work, you can resume activity when your building is authorized to reopen. If the project you are proposing requires review by the IRB, IACUC and/or IBC, please submit your protocol/registration directly to the appropriate compliance committee, and they will follow standard protocols and procedures. If you are proposing a COVID-related clinical trial, refer to the COVID-19 Clinical Trial Feasibility Review webpage for more information. If you have any further questions, contact research.covid19@umich.edu.

Index Your COVID-19 Research

U-M would like to index coronavirus projects in which our faculty are involved. Projects that use U-M resources, such as the IRB, animals or wet laboratories, are being reviewed by the OVPR COVID-19 Research Committee, and those PIs are being asked whether they would like their projects indexed. If you are engaged in a project that does not involve such resources, and would like OVPR to index your coronavirus project on its COVID-19 portal to increase awareness and foster collaboration among researchers, please complete the following form.
