COVID-19 Coronavirus Research and Education Fund

The Crisis: A Global Pandemic Is Here

On March 11, The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the novel coronavirus/COVID-19 epidemic a pandemic. COVID-19 is one of the most urgent public health crises in generations; we must act now to understand pathogenesis, infection, transmission, containment, and mitigation to halt this deadly virus.

Los Angeles is the frontline of community transmission. Scientists and medical and public-health professionals have been preparing for such a pandemic and are working together creatively to tackle this novel pathogen, learn from it, beat it, and prevent new outbreaks in Los Angeles and around the world.

The UCLA Health Strategy: Patient Care, Research, Education, and Community

COVID-19 is an unprecedented crisis, to be sure, straining healthcare systems globally. To address the ongoing and emerging needs of the public, UCLA is implementing an emergency preparedness strategy for COVID-19. We are:

  • Expanding capacity to care for an influx of patients
  • Examining the genesis of this virus to halt its spread
  • Training professionals to manage highly infectious diseases
  • Leading research and discovery to develop vaccines

UCLA continues to define the research and care landscape that puts our community and its residents first.

How You Can Help | Research & Education

In these unprecedented times, it takes a village to meet the challenges of COVID-19 head on. As part of our integrated efforts with UCLA Health and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, we have created a research and education response fund to help us act immediately and save lives.
