COVID-19 research guidance and July 15 virtual town hall sessions

Dear Campus Research Community,

The OVPRI and research IMT group will be hosting another series of virtual Town Halls on Wednesday, July 15 to hear more of your questions and provide additional information. In particular, we will discuss new guidance related to training members in your research group and planning for an intermediate recovery stage between stages 1 and 2.  

We invite you to join one of the following sessions on Wednesday, July 15:

Session 1: 9:30-10am,

Session 2: 10:30-11:00pm,

Registration is NOT required. If you are a UO affiliate and need the Zoom link, please contact

The second session will be more focused on human subjects research, though the content will be similar at both sessions so you may join whichever session works best with your schedule. 

We will take questions during the virtual meeting sessions, but also encourage you to submit questions in advance for us to address in the meeting. Please email questions to by Tuesday, July 14 at noon.

Please continue to pay close attention to your university email and frequently monitor the UO’s coronavirus website as well as the Research FAQ site. If you have any unaddressed needs or questions, please use the UO COVID-19 web form.

Thank you for your flexibility and dedication to ensuring the health and safety of our research community.
