Updates to the guidance on
human subjects research

Updated Feb. 1, 2021

The Guidance for Resuming Human Subjects Research has been updated as follows:

  • The revisions provide a mechanism to allow enrolled undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty and staff with permission to access University buildings to participate in human subjects research, either as a researcher and/or a participant.
  • The revisions require all on-campus labs conducting human subjects research to submit a Research Laboratory Operations Plan (RLOP) or Research Non-laboratory Operations Plan (RNOP).
  • Researchers and research subjects must participate in the Princeton University asymptomatic testing program, with the most recent test within one week of participation.
  • There has been no change to the policy prohibiting off-campus visitors from serving as research subjects on campus at this time.
