The scientific community has reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic with unprecedented speed and cooperation. Key insights for saving lives are coming out of rapid genome sequencing, open data sharing and transparent scientific communications.
Grounded in experience with global health threats ranging from AIDS to Zika, our researchers are an important part of the international scientific response to the pandemic — tracking and modeling the virus' spread, developing diagnostic tests, designing vaccine trials, and working to prevent future outbreaks.
Our lives won’t return to normal without a COVID-19 vaccine. Fred Hutch experts are at the forefront of an unprecedented, global effort to conceive of and test safe and effective vaccines against this virus.
In a recent virtual event, Fred Hutch President and Director Dr. Tom Lynch talked with vaccine experts Drs. Larry Corey and John Mascola about what it will take to be successful in developing and distributing vaccines in record time.
Check out the video of the event and learn more about the vaccine process through an infographic.
Here are news, resources and information on the COVID-19 pandemic based our science and expertise:
Fred Hutch researchers are committed to ending the COVID-19 pandemic — from vaccines to developing COVID-19 diagnostic and serology tests to modeling the spread of the virus.
Researchers are working together to stop this pandemic and prevent the next one —
people like Dr. Elizabeth Halloran, a global leader in using statistics and dynamic models to understand infectious disease outbreaks and to evaluate vaccines and vaccination strategies.
Every dollar helps our scientists reduce the threat of the novel coronavirus.
