With the province of Nova Scotia currently within phase 4 reopening and the CBU campus returning to in person classes, faculty and students may return to conducting in person research. All in-person research must strictly follow the COVID-19 safety protocols and guidelines–including CBU’s vaccine policy–as outlined in CBU’s return to campus plan https://www.cbu.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/CBU-Return-to-Campus-Plan-SEPT.pdf
Safety precautions surrounding COVID-19 and plans to conduct in-person research must be outlined by the primary investigator within your REB application. Researchers moving from virtual to in-person research for a previously approved study must submit an amendment for REB review.
The Office of Research and Graduate Studies will continue to monitor and update the policy related to in person research as CBU returns to campus. Any questions regarding in-person research and ethics can be sent to Jared Walters at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CBU REB accepts REB protocols on a monthly basis. See the list of submission deadlines. Contact email@example.com for further information. Expedited review requests will not be accepted.
Please note, any research involving human participants requires approval from the CBU REB prior to the start of the research project.
