OUHSC Research News - Monday, May 31, 2021

OCAST Deadlines – see the OTHER DEADLINES Section below.

 

List of Oklahoma Center for Adult Stem Cell Research (OCASCR) Equipment available to all scientists in Oklahoma is at:

http://www.ocascr.org/core-facilities/

 

Would you like assistance with your research, case study or QI project from an OU College of Medicine student? Medical students are eager to gain research experience and to help OU faculty and residents with their projects. Students are interested in paid or unpaid positions and available time varies by their year in the curriculum. Simply share some basic information regarding your project on the Student Research Opportunities Portal in order to have an interested student contact you. (https://com.ouhsc.edu/research-project?posting)

 

PLEASE NOTE: Change to OUHSC new NIH Other Support pages requirements.  OUHSC will not start implementing this policy internally until October 01, 2021 (previously July 1, 2021).  Please keep in mind, that other institutions may have already implemented this policy and you may be required to use the new format for them before the OUHSC October 01, 2021 date.

 

Effective immediately, all Human Subject Research (HSR) activities including clinical trials are allowed to resume provided all OUHSC COVID-19 safety protocols can be met.  It is expected that all personnel will adhere to the requirements in the OUHSC COVID-19 Response Plan. If your current HSR protocol was temporarily halted due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the HRPP Office will update the study status of those protocols without any action required from you.

Also, in accordance with campus policy, our research laboratories* remain closed to K-12 students for shadowing, volunteer, and educational purposes, but open to visitors, undergraduates, graduates, and post-docs from any institution for those purposes, provided the following are observed by these individuals.  The manager of the area where these individuals will be is responsible for compliance:

  • non-HSC individuals will complete the online visitor screening tool prior to their first day on campus individuals will be required to show proof of a negative COVID test (within past 48 hours) or documentation of COVID vaccination, if required based on screening results
  • all individuals will complete the HSC online COVID-19 training module in OnPoint, using their HSC credentials
  • all individuals (including students, faculty, staff, and volunteers) will comply with OU’s COVID-19 vaccine policy:
  • those with patient-facing or research participant-facing responsibilities or who will be in patient care or human research
  • all other individuals will be strongly encouraged to be vaccinated against COVID-19

       *     all individuals will be informed that they must comply with and be given the link to the HSC COVID-19 Response Plan

*Rotations in clinical areas on campus and at OUMI are limited to OUHSC students, at least through July 2021. With these changes, we are retiring the Return to Research Plan and will refer to the OUHSC COVID Response Plan for COVID protocols. If you identify a deficiency caused by this action, please email vpr@ouhsc.edu
