Verification / App Review for App Created for Academic Research

I am an academic researcher who's part of a project that's trying to collect instagram data from its participants (with their consent, of course, and with the approval of our Institutional Review Board). I have successfully built an app that is able to collect user data, but has so far only been able to collect data from testers (since the app has not yet been reviewed).

Given the suspension of individual review, I am not entirely sure what the most expeditious way is to get this app deployed and usable by our participants. It seems we may have to piggyback on some sort of business account, but that seems an unnecessarily belaboring process. I am not a developer by trade, and so am very much unfamiliar with best practice here.

My thanks in advance for any advice!
