A message from Dr. Lok
I am pleased to announce that beginning June 22, Investigators with studies classified as Tier 0 or 1 determined by the U-M Human Research Activation Tier Framework can apply for reactivation to their respective Human Research Activation Committee. Tier 2 study applications will be accepted starting on July 13. Study teams should be notified of their activation within one week after their application. As a reminder, all human research work that can be done remotely should continue in that manner.
Human Research Town Hall | June 25
Research leadership from across the University will be hosting a virtual town hall focused on human subject research studies conducted within Michigan Medicine hospitals and clinics, on Thursday, June 25 at 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM. During this Town Hall, we will address common questions, concerns, and plans to resume human research at the University of Michigan. A U-M uniqname and password are required to access the town hall, and we encourage you to submit questions in advance.
Research Re-engagement Website
In the meantime, I invite you to view the Research Re-engagement website for further information on the reactivation of human subjects research. Study teams can learn:
- How to conduct human research safely and efficiently
- Which types of human research activities are currently permitted and how tiers for re-engagement are defined
- What steps and responsibilities are required for re-engagement of human research
- Access the Human Research Activation Checklist and Human Research During COVID-19 Training Module
- View common FAQs pertaining to human research
On behalf of the entire Clinical Trials Support Office team, we appreciate your patience and dedication during this time as we begin to resume our research enterprise at the University of Michigan. We are here to support you and your research.
For additional questions, please email the Human Research Activation committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
