Guidance for Tulane University Researchers Regarding COVID-19


The Tulane University Research Compliance Office (RCO) remains fully operational during the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We expect this to continue even if the university further suspends on-site operations for purposes of decreasing COVID-19 transmission.


As Tulane University makes decisions on how to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to reassure the university community that our primary concern is the safety of our research participants and the research team members at the university. Our secondary goal is to preserve the scientific integrity of the research and its protocols.

RCO staff members are working remotely and are available to assist you:
