As of 4-7-22, UK Research updated our FAQs to reflect high school students are now allowed back in UK research laboratories. In general, if you are conducting research that is NOT taking place at a UK HealthCare facility, you must follow institutional guidance in the Spring 2022 Guide. If you are conducting research at a UK HealthCare facility, you must follow UK HealthCare requirements. Send questions to email@example.com.
