Senior leaders of the Research Institute held a virtual All Hands Meeting Aug. 6 to answer questions “town hall” style concerning financial stewardship and future research operations, in light of the research ramp-up and COVID-19 pandemic.

The research community successfully ramped up to 50 percent staffing levels for research groups as of July 6. Everyone’s ongoing vigilance and adherence to universal masking, physical distancing, and hand washing remains essential to returning to research on campus safely. Please continue to accomplish tasks that can be done remotely whenever possible.

Your responses and feedback to two REDCap surveys will help Research Institute Leadership to generate ideas for financial stewardship and guide ramp-up planning efforts. Your time and thoughtful answers to the surveys below are truly appreciated:

  • Financial Stewardship Survey: All of us can have a meaningful contribution to our financial stewardship efforts to support, enhance, and strengthen the Research Institute’s mission. A REDCap survey is now available to submit your ideas for how CHOP Research Institute can reduce costs and innovate at CHOP to promote financial stewardship.
  • Return to Research Employee Survey: Please complete this survey, and tell us about what you need to do your jobs safely and efficiently. Research Institute leaders will use your responses to inform decisions and adapt or create protocols and processes to support future ramp-up and ramp-down transitions.

Research Creative Services compiled a collection of abbreviated answers to help summarize the hour-long discussion. Video recordings of the All Hands Meetings also are available here:, along with past meeting notes.

If you have other research-specific COVID-19 questions, please search existing FAQs on the @CHOP Bioresponse Team page, or submit a new question.
