Interim Vice President of Research
To: USC research community
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation unfolds, USC is rapidly responding through its many units and services. Research, a key mission of our University, is impacted by the epidemic. To help you navigate this situation, we have set up a dedicated web site for research-relevant COVID-19 information:research.usc.edu/coronavirus
The site includes updates about key research topics, including: lab staffing and materials procurement, remote research, human research and OPRS & IRB, vivaria, environment health & safety reviews, contracts & grants, research travel cancelations, latest federal agency guidelines, and COVID-19 research opportunities, and more.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to the USC Office of Research (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you cannot find research-relevant information and answers on the new website, or if you have information and ideas you would like to contribute to improve communication. We welcome your feedback.
