COVID Ethical, Social, and Regulatory Research Challenges

The Ethics and Regulatory Subgroup, part of the Behavioral Health & Population Outcomes Working Group of the Cleveland SARS-CoV-2 Task Force, is seeking researchers in Northeast Ohio to complete a brief online survey on research needs, barriers, and protections during the pandemic.

The Ethics and Regulatory Subgroup is a team of academic researchers studying the ethical, social, and regulatory issues in research during the COVID-19 Pandemic.   This study is being conducted by researchers at Case Western Reserve University.

For most participants, the survey should only take 20 minutes.  The study is confidential.  

This brief survey is part of a CTSA project on the ethical and regulatory challenges local researchers have encountered during the COVID pandemic. Our study is NOT related to the recent survey to assess CWRU faculty research needs.
