When a lethal new virus emerges, the world looks to its leading scientific communities to develop solutions swiftly.
The breadth of UCL’s research and expertise means that we are uniquely placed to respond not only to the immediate tasks of understanding the virus and finding a vaccine, but assessing the long term impacts this will have on our daily lives going forward.
Transform challenge into change
That is why we have launched the UCL Coronavirus Response Fund. Joining government and existing rapid-response philanthropic contributions, this initiative will raise urgently-needed funding for UCL’s targeted coronavirus research activity. All donations, large and small, will enable us to continue to mobilise around three key areas that will contribute to the management, mitigation, and eventual halt of the virus:
- Sequencing of the virus and vaccine development
- Monitoring and surveillance of the virus, its progression, and its impact
- Managing the unprecedented challenges to our healthcare system, the way we live and work, and the impact on society.
By supporting this Fund, you will join a global community of friends, alumni, donors, students and staff, united in the service of UCL’s founding ambition – to make the world a better, healthier and more secure place for us all.
Help UCL find solutions to the challenges that COVID-19 brings, at a pace that would, under normal circumstances, be considered impossible.
