Indiana University Blogs provides an easy-to-use platform for faculty, staff, and departments who wish to have a blog at IU. The platform is a multisite WordPress environment, and is supported by University Information Technology Services.
Even though WordPress is called a "blog platform", the system is very robust and allows one to customize the website to fulfill any role. A good example of an IU Blogs website at IUSO is the CORL (Clinical Optics Research Lab), which uses a default, albeit highly customized "IU President" theme.
In order to create your website:
- Click on "Get a new blog site", and follow the instructions.
- Add first content (posts, pages) and customize the look and feel of the new website. Follow the guide on WordPress.
- The IU offers a comprehensive set of brand guidelines and resources (fonts, logos, images, and other resources). It is important to adhere to the brand guidelines so make sure to understand and make use of these resources.
- If you have questions you can send them to Matt Jaskulski, email@example.com.
Please consider contacting IU Proposal Development Services to aid in the preparation of a new grant submission: https://research.iu.edu/funding-proposals/proposals/index.html.
Please contact Teresa May firstname.lastname@example.org at IUSO to help in creating your budget. Teresa will also initially approve the budget prior to IUSO routing your project across campus. Please contact Teresa as soon as you know of a potential submission and do this well in advance of any deadline. To the degree possible, please consider submitting non-modular budgets and minimize cost share. If budget reductions occur later, please talk to Dean Bonanno or AD for Research Pete Kollbaum.
For information regarding the approximate numbers/types of patients in our clinics, please go to the following link to IUSO BOX.
These numbers are updated quarterly, but hopefully allow the approximate information needed. However, if you have questions on this, or need additional information, please contact Jennifer Fisher email@example.com.
The Indiana University School of Optometry (IUSO) is considered one Covered Entity under Indiana University’s HIPAA plan. All IUSO clinics and research labs must comply with the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules. Protected Health Information (PHI) created and maintained in the IUSO clinics may be used and disclosed for research purposes only when the appropriate standards are met, depending on the research need. Research needs may include:
- Reviews preparatory to research or feasibility review
- Recruiting subjects
- Records review with a waiver of authorization
- Data in a limited data set with a Data Use Agreement
- Subject data with a signed HIPAA authorization
If you wish to search the clinic electronic health record (EHR) or request records for any of these purposes, submit the Request to Search Patient Records Form and IRB documentation to Claire Tempel, IUSO Compliance and Privacy Officer for approval at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon approval, the Compliance and Privacy Officer will forward to the designated individual to search records on behalf of the requesting researcher.
For more information, please see the IUSO HIPAA policy or contact:

Compliance and Privacy Officer
There are also several other means which may help you recruit subjects for your research studies. Of note, to use any of these, they must be included and approved in your IRB application prior to their use.
- There are several recruitment databases you can sign up for:
- Please consider posting on IUSO’s electronic bulletin board system (e.g. third floor touch screen monitor). To be included in this, please email your IRB approval notice and search ad to Dawn Meyer at email@example.com.
Depending on the type of project you have, there may be data directly obtainable from an existing database. A few examples are listed below.
Bowen Center for Health Workforce Research and Policy in the School of Medicine has lots of great resources including this data portal site:
The IUSO BCOR maintains shared equipment for research use. This list of equipment is available here. Individuals should be trained prior to the use of this equipment and must keep it in mind that the equipment is shared. This equipment may also be used for teaching purposes in select situations and upon approval. To schedule training or use of this equipment, please contact Dawn Meyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A listing of many campus-wide resources is available at the link below.
RESEARCH EQUIPMENT FABRICATION
IUSO as well as several other locations on campus possess a high degree of proficiency in fabricating custom research equipment.
If you need to fabricate a piece of equipment, please contact Tim Clarke email@example.com. He can provide information on timing and capabilities within IUSO or liaise with other shops on campus to complete your job. When contacting Tim, please provide the grant number to charge his time and parts. If submitting a proposal, a cost estimate of time and materials can also be provided to include in the grant submission. Exploratory or pilot projects without funding are possible in some instances with approval from AD for Research Pete Kollbaum.
For information on the square footage of IUSO dedicated to different types of research, please see that corresponding information of the annual ASCO 2017-18 Research Survey.xlsx.
