COVID-19 Updates & Resources


Guidance on Stanford Research Activities

  • All researchers should review the Appendix A: Researcher Return Checklist in the Stanford Research Recovery Handbook prior to coming to campus. 
  • All faculty, researchers, staff, postdocs, and students in essential roles authorized to work on-site must be indicated in the On-site Role Management System (ORMS). Speak with your Division Manager if you need to be added. 
  • Stanford has a free COVID-19 surveillance testing program for faculty, staff, and postdocs not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Starting May 2, 2021, participation in Stanford’s surveillance testing program will become voluntary for Stanford faculty, staff and postdocs approved to come to campus. Stanford recommends you continue to test weekly until you are fully vaccinated, and after that, following travel or if you beliive you may have been exposed to COVID-19. Postdocs living on campus will still be required to test weekly, as is the case for graduate students who are in similar housing. 
  • Before coming to campus each day, all persons must obtain a daily virtual Online Access Badge from the Stanford University online tool called Health Check to screen for fever and other COVID-related symptoms.
  • The Department of Pediatrics provides Pediatrics resources for research, and updates and resources from NIH, RMG, and Sponsored Research Project on their COVID-19 Updates and Resources page. Anyone with concerns should feel free to contact the Pediatrics Restart Research Committee and/or Stanford’s Ethics and Compliance Helpline (650-721-2667).

COVID-19 Research at Stanford

Stanford Medicine Research >

Stanford Medicine scientists have launched dozens of research projects as part of the global response to COVID-19. Some aim to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease; others aim to understand how it spreads and how people’s immune systems respond to it. Click here.

Stanford RISE: Research Across Campus >

Stanford researchers quickly developed novel ways of testing for COVID-19, began testing drugs that might treat the disease and modeled the effects of social distancing. This site includes a list of COVID-19 research and projects being done on campus (SUNet login). Click here.


Participate in COVID-19 Research: Stanford Medicine Research Registry

The Stanford Medicine Research Registry connects people like you, with teams conducting research, to improve health care and well-being. If you are eligible for a study, researchers may contact you to provide additional details on how to participate.
