Funding opportunities for COVID-19 research available to investigators

Research Development and the Research Concierge Service at Penn State College of Medicine have developed a list of funding opportunities for investigators interested in research projects related to COVID-19.

The National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and other institutions are supporting research from a variety of disciplines to address the COVID-19 pandemic.

Note regarding human subjects research

In order to reduce any additional personal contact between individuals, certain guidelines are in place for clinical research. See details on the University’s requirements for human subjects research here.
