The scientific community has reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic with unprecedented speed and cooperation. Grounded in experience with global health threats such as HIV as well as the impact of infectious diseases on cancer patients, our researchers are an important part of the international scientific response to the pandemic. For more than a year they have been working tirelessly — tracking and modeling the virus' spread, detailing the immune response to the virus, conducting trials of vaccines and treatments, and working to prevent future outbreaks.
