COVID-19 and Research Activities

October 2020 Update

Dear Campus Community:

To conitnue to combat the spread of COVID-19, the IRB Office will be adhering to social distancing recommendations by limiting face-to-face contact and communicating primarily via email, phone or Zoom. We may also be dealing with reduced staffing or out-of-office work at times, and ask for patience during this period.

Please note that many of our IRB committee members and staff have additional obligations during this period, which may result in a slowdown in review and processing time of protocols. To avoid delays and expirations, and reviews we highly encourage new submissions to be sent in sooner rather than later to allow for additional review time.

Please contact the IRB Office with any questions or concerns. Currently, the best way to reach us is by emailing our group email at irb-office@cpp.edu ( or mayah@cpp.edu ). 

As more information is available, we will share it with you. Up-to-date information relevant to Cal Poly Pomona can be found at the CPP Health Alert website. Questions on the response and preparedness of the University may be sent directly to healthalert@cpp.edu. As well as additional information pertaining to safely returning to campus https://www.cpp.edu/safety/safer-return/
