Virtual Office Hours

The Office for the Protection of Research Subjects and the Office of Research and Scholarly Integrity will be offering online office hours to assist investigators preparing a protocol for first- time IRB review. At this time protocols involving COVID-19 research will be given priority, however office hours are available to all researchers developing a human subject study.

To schedule office hours, please review the schedule below and email oprs@usc.edu with your first and second choice timeslot at least one week in advance. Be sure to attach a copy of the protocol in its current form. You will receive a calendar Zoom invite to join the virtual office hours within 24 hours.
