Clarification about Participants Aged 85+

Effective immediately

Earlier this week, the Human Subjects Division published some basic expectations for all in-person human subjects research, in connection with our new COVID Risk self-assessment tool.

One of those expectations is that participants over the age of 85 years will not be enrolled. We have clarified this on our website and in all other places as:

“No participants over the age of 85 years will be enrolled, if their in-person participation is not connected with a clinical care visit.
