COVID-19 Restrictions

May 1, 2020

As the situation evolves, MSU continues to review and discuss when to resume research activities, including in-person participant interactions in human research studies. While MSU continues to evaluate when and how research activities may resume, all of the human research restrictions are in effect until further notice. This applies to both the restrictions for research conducted in Michigan and the restrictions for research conducted outside of Michigan.

Please note that research procedures involving no direct in-person interactions with participants are still permitted to continue (e.g. data analysis, online surveys, telephone interviews), so long as those procedures are done in compliance with any State or local restrictions.
