MSU Research Continuity And Response During COVID-19
Michigan State University has taken significant strides to not only maintain continuity in research but to also re-activate research on the MSU campus and in facilities across the state since the Executive Order on May 15 allowed for non-essential research to resume on-campus.
Even while working off-campus, investigators have been analyzing data, conducting peer review, working on technology transfer documentation, preparing publications and more. Particular emphasis was placed on continuing essential research and conducting new COVID-19 investigations.
Learn how we are keeping our researchers safe by visiting the Research Continuity website and see the university novel coronavirus website for updates related to campus, students, resources and more. The MSU Keep Working (remote) site also has help and resources for those working remotely.
