UPDATE for Spring 2022: Research with human participants and COVID-19

Due to rapidly changing COVID-19 circumstances, the PLU HPRB strongly recommends that undergraduate and graduate student researchers should conduct their studies online or remotely, wherever possible, particularly if the project is essential to meet degree requirements for an upcoming graduation.  Researchers who wish to conduct in-person research should contact the HPRB ( for guidance before submitting a proposal. Any research involving in-person interaction must follow current public health and PLU requirements and will require a risk mitigation plan.
