On-campus research and scholarly activities, fieldwork and interaction with research participants update from vice-president (research)
Memorial is implementing a new framework, which outlines a phased approach to returning to on-campus research spaces, fieldwork and face-to-face interactions with research participants. Read a new statement on research from Dr. Neil Bose, vice-president (research).
Memorial is collaborating with a group of private-sector volunteers to ensure the province has an adequate supply of critical personal protective equipment (PPE) during the COVID-19 crisis.
When it comes to battling the spread of COVID-19, engineers at Memorial are putting their expertise – and time – to work, collaborating with units such as the Department of Technical Services.
Memorial University is enacting further measures related to buildings access on all our campuses to enhance social distancing and keep our community safe. By ensuring we are aware of who is on campus, we are better able to protect the health and safety of our faculty, staff and students who must come to campus. A checklist has also been developed to assist in ensuring laboratory/research space hazards are controlled while the spaces are unoccupied.
