Sarah Evans
30:32
Thanks Jennifer1
Diana Berman
30:47
I cannot unmite
jennifer.cowley@unt.edu
30:52
Yes HPC resources are considered essential and will remain open at this time
marco
31:15
Thank you Jennifer!
Elinor Lichtenberg
31:16
Will emergency leave be available for staff supported by startup?
Pamela Padilla
31:21
HPC considered critical & we will have Mark speak to this point
Rebecca Dickstein
31:46
Will there be guidance for graduate students who may need extra time because they have lost time this spring on their research projects? In our case, some of our experiments take months.
jennifer.cowley@unt.edu
32:27
The guidance on emergency leave is slightly different depending on the status of the employee - Full time salaried, Full-time hourly etc. Full clarity will be forthcoming in the next day or two.
Rebecca Dickstein
32:42
thank you.
Elinor Lichtenberg
32:44
Thank you, Jennifer.
Nicoladie Tam
33:17
Will we still be able to submit grants?
Pamela Padilla
33:52
yes grants and all research office services are being conducted
Camilo Ruggero
34:38
Triage seems critical right now, but it also seems critical to pivot quickly to use university resources to address this national and regional tragedy. This is also an unpreceded opportunity o understand hwo a novel virus spreads and interacts with hosts. I'm sure many are already doing this pivot but does UNT leadership want to signal this as an area of focus? Understanding what emergency funding has become available seems critical. We are pivoting our grants to focus on the crisis (e.g., we had funded students to treat in community; we are now redirecting their funding so they can provide telehealth) but more can be done. A COVID research taskforce?
Denise Baxter

Per today's email "Under no circumstance should any equipment/materials be shipped to an employee’s home address, any employee who violates this policy may be subject to disciplinary action. IF your deliveries are normally shipped to your department/office, please update your profile to send to Central Receiving. We do not want packages in hallways/floors unsecured. "
Rebecca Dickstein
37:08
I seem not to be able to unmute myself. Will there be guidance for graduate students who may need extra time because they have lost time this spring on their research projects? In our case, some of our experiments take months.
Pamela Padilla

Martin O'Neill
47:40
I'm on the computational side of public health preparedness. I'd be happy to explore if there are any opportunities for collaborations.

47:43
During this period, would we be allowed to a temporal short visit our offices just, for example, to take books we need to reboot computers if they needed?
Camilo Ruggero
48:11
Pyschology's contribution: 1) recently completed NIAID grant that's primary study weakness was lack fo a novel virus. COVID is novel
Camilo Ruggero
48:22
Sorry!

Thanks everybody

Cynthia Frosch
01:04:17
Thank you for your comments about SPOTs. Can a faculty member, however, request that they be included? The reason I ask is that our 8 week AOP classes have finished before the COVID-19 event and faculty effort and and responsive teaching could be beneficial to P&T efforts.
Cynthia Frosch
01:05:14
Thank you for your response.
