COVID-19 Response Guide for University Researchers and Research Groups

Update on business processes for REBs and ACUCs and the Research Ethics Office

As of March 26, 2020, the Research Ethics Office is working remotely and able to conduct most business remotely during public health emergency. In regards to the review of ethics applications related to human and animal research, please note the following:

  • We are continuing to review submissions as they are received so that researchers will be able to continue their research once the University/AHS resumes normal operations.
  • Ethics approval does not guarantee that researchers will be able to conduct their research as outlined. Researchers must comply with all University of Alberta and AHS/Covenant Health guidance (as applicable) during the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • COVID research applications will be prioritized.

For Human Participant Research:

  • An emergency REB has been constituted and will conduct a virtual review of studies that require review by the full board. This Committee will be meeting on the regularly scheduled REB 4 Wednesday meeting dates and will convene additional meetings as needed.
  • For any questions related to human participant research contact: reoffice@ualberta.ca to have your question appropriately routed, or see our contacts page.
  • If researchers require assistance with creating an ethics application, help is available through QMCR. Please contact Scott Jamieson (scott.jamieson@ualberta.ca).

For Animal Research:

  • Log into ARISE to see the following a memorandum which contains important communication with all animal users about research during COVID-19 crisis.
  • For any questions related to animal research contact: reoffice@ualberta.ca to have your question appropriately routed, or see our contacts page.

Scheduled Maintenance

REMO (Research Ethics & Management Online) has recently undergone a rebrand to better represent the scope of services that are hosted within the system.

ARISE (Alberta Research Information Services) is the new name that will be used going forward. There is no disruption to any of the services as a result of this change.
