Research involving humans - response to COVID-19
27 July 2020
Due to the current circumstances (Phase 3 of the Scottish Government’s roadmap out of lockdown), research should be conducted using online or remote methods where at all possible.
New or restarting in-person face-to-face research or research involving travel must be permissible, safe and ethical. If that is not possible, it must be postponed.
For more information, see the interim guidance for research involving humans.
UTREC is responsible for overseeing the ethical review and approval of the University's research activities involving human participants, their data or samples.
