In clinical work and discovery science, the School takes on COVID-19

From directly supporting the front lines of health care to boldly exploring potential treatments, the UCSF School of Pharmacy is moving quickly against the COVID-19 pandemic, applying a scientific mindset to challenges being raised during the crisis.

With the goal of bringing attention to this critical work and fostering further scientific collaboration, our School has created a living document of all novel coronavirus projects occurring in our community, which range from a student-led personal protective equipment (PPE) drive to efforts to identify better therapeutics.

Visit COVID-19 Research Responses and COVID-19 Patient Care Responses to learn about each project and the faculty members, staff, and students behind them. The pages will be updated as work continues and new projects are added.
