IACUC Guidance – COVID-19

*NEW* COVID-19 Course Available on CITI for all UNTHSC Researchers

UNTHSC has added a new CITI course to our program, titled, “COVID-19: Back to Campus (Fall 2020)”. This complementary course has been launched to train researchers/faculty, staff, and students on COVID-19 safety for their return to campus. Please note that this course/training is voluntary, and available to interested individuals at UNTHSC – it is not required that researchers complete this. However, individuals interested in completing this course will need to do so by midnight September 30, 2020 (the course will close October 1, 2020).

A reminder that you must have a CITI Program account to access this course. Please click the following link to access the CITI Website. For additional information/instructions on accessing the course, please click here.

A special shout-out and THANK YOU to our colleague, Dr. Maya Nair (Associate Director, Biosafety/Assistant Professor – MIG) for her authorship and contributions to this effort, and for helping to make this course possible!!

(In addition to UNTHSC, other contributors include: University of Maryland School of Medicine, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Yale University, and Northwestern University.)
