Coordinated COVID-19 Research Activities and Initiatives across BC

BC’s health research community is collaborating to provide a coordinated, strategic approach to the COVID-19 pandemic that supports decision makers, patients, public and others.

This page serves as a resource identifying research efforts underway and planned, and supports participating organizations in communicating their work in the context of a coordinated provincial health research response.

If you are a researcher or researcher leader, you can help support BC’s coordinated research approach.
