COVID Updates for Researchers


Brandeis University is committed to upholding the highest standards in the ethical conduct of research, including the protection of all human subjects participating in research at, or under the auspices of, Brandeis University.

Operating under a federalwide assurance with the Office of Human Research Protection within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services at the National Institutes of Health, the Brandeis University Human Research Protection Program is responsible for the safety and welfare of all subjects participating in human subjects research at the university.

We are available to assist you, the investigators, and would like to do what we can to help get your Institutional Review Board research applications through the review process as efficiently as possible. Please feel free to give us a call, send us an email or just drop by.
