COVID-19 Research Contingency Planning Guidance and Resources

March 11, 2020

The Office of Research & Innovation is actively planning for continuity of our services in support of the University's research community in the event of COVID-19 related disruptions.

The objective of our research contingency planning is to minimize potential disruption by:

  • reducing the risk of transmission among University community members; 
  • protecting people who are at higher risk for adverse health complications; 
  • maintaining research operations and research support services;
  • providing up to date guidance to the university research community.

We have developed some resources for research contingency planning and posted it on our website. We plan on keeping this information up to date during this dynamic situation, so please continue to check the site for updates.

We will be continuously monitoring the situation as it develops and as Drexel updates its approach, and we will update these webpages to reflect the most recent information.

You should reach out to your Department head and your Associate Dean for Research who can coordinate with the appropriate Research & Innovation team if you need additional guidance.

On behalf of the Research & Innovation team and Research Emergency Preparedness Subcommittee,

Aleister J. Saunders, Ph.D.
