COVID-19 Information

The Office of Research Proposal Development is fully functional and operating at normal capacity. We expect this to continue even if the university further suspends on-site operations for the 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 and wellbeing of our our research community and participants and the research team members at the university. Our secondary goal is to ensure continued support for research development and productivity.
