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.

Required changes to research practice based on the coronavirus will be posted on the Office of Research website, https://research.tulane.edu/. Please check the website frequently if you are interacting with research participants.
