The Emory Vaccine Center has, almost overnight, ramped up its considerable expertise to focus on all angles of SARS-CoV-2. Their goal is to discover how to treat, cure and prevent COVID-19.

The list of ongoing and proposed EVC projects to combat COVID-19 is extremely impressive and will continue to evolve over the course of the next several weeks and months.

See the current list of projects

A huge thank you to everyone at the EVC who is involved in responding to COVID-19!
