Conducting research – guidance with respect to research activities during this time can be found below:

Grant applications and submissions – the Dean of Medicine Office has advised the following:

To support remote work, physical and secure PDF signatures are not required during this period, provided that the completed RPIF and all email approvals from the faculty member, Department Head, Centre Director and ADR (as applicable) are sent as attachments in one email to the Office of Research Services or the University-Industry Liaison Office as applicable.

For all research grant applications (including Research Project Information Forms) normally sent to the Faculty of Medicine Dean’s Office for the Dean’s signature, we are encouraging all Departments, Schools, Centres and Institutes to send electronic submissions at this time as there may be delays in processing hard-copy submissions. More information regarding the submission of research applications can be found on MedNet.

Funding agencies are also making adjustments to address disruptions to research.

Please contact the Department Research Program if you need additional guidance or research support at this time.
