Dalhousie University is a global leader in the discoveries and development of new vaccines, antiviral drugs and other life-saving viral therapies. And now, Dalhousie researchers are using their knowledge and expertise to focus on the fight against COVID-19.

Dalhousie researchers are collaborating with experts around the world to fight COVID-19, and have already mobilized on a number of projects that will be so essential in the weeks and months to come. The number one priority of course is to find COVID-19 vaccines that will bring this pandemic under control. And, they’re also working on other critical projects like new antiviral drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs to treat COVID-19 pneumonia and the development of rapid response test kits.

Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation is proud to support this essential research, with the help of our generous community of donors. 

Canadians from coast to coast are counting on our research community to find the solution. Let’s show the world what we can do when we all pull together.
