The SPRING lab conducts clinical trials on critically ill patients admitted to the intensive care unit or other parts of the hospital to help improve clinical outcomes. All research personnel working with SPRING should expect to be on campus and potentially come into direct contact with COVID-19 patients and blood samples with COVID-19 and other pathogens using CDC approved personal protective equipment (PPE). Due to the nature of the clinical trials, research personnel work variable schedules, including some holidays and weekends. Research personnel are expected to share the call schedule, including weekends and holiday shifts, equally with available staff.
