As the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to providing agile and efficient oversight of all COVID-19 data and samples that may be used for research purposes.
The COVID-19 Research Oversight Committee is charged to assess, provide guidance, and make recommendations to the Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation on requests for access to the University’s COVID-19 data and related biological samples. Please complete the form on the next page to initiate your request with the Illinois National COVID-19 Registry.
Types of Data/Samples Available*
* All data/samples are currently de-identified.
Application Review and Approval ProcessAfter an application is submitted, it is reviewed by C-ROC staff. The amount of time it takes to review an application depends on whether and how many changes are required before a determination. C-ROC staff will work with the requester until all required information is provided and the request can be reviewed at a meeting. Generally, it takes 2-4 weeks for a determination to be made on an application after it is submitted.
Application MaintenanceAfter an application is approved, it is the Investigator’s responsibility to ensure the data/samples are being used in a manner consistent with the approved application. If any changes or updates need to be made to the request, please contact Dustin Yocum (email@example.com) or Gillian Snyder (firstname.lastname@example.org).
