We are working rapidly to better understand, detect, track, and develop therapies for the novel coronavirus through a range of COVID-19 research projects.
The IGI is accelerating research efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. We have awarded over $2 million in funding to new COVID-19 research projects through our Rapid Response Research (RRR) fund and the Laboratory for Genomics Research (LGR) Excellence in Research Award (ERA). Because of the urgency of this public health crisis, we are supporting projects that will yield results in just 6–12 months.
These research projects span a variety of approaches aimed at quickly gaining a better understanding of SARS-CoV-2 and the COVID-19 pandemic to track its spread, develop new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, and to address the impacts of the pandemic on science.
We will update this page as projects progress.
