Help us tackle COVID-19 through research collaborations, by donating equipment or funding research

The University of Cambridge is co-ordinating activities to address COVID-19, including:

  • Establishing research collaborations with other research institutions, industrial and charity partners across key disciplines and activities such as:
    clinical trials, critical care, diagnostics, immunology, infectious diseases, public health, respiratory medicine, vaccines, virology, business risk, data science and modelling, engineering and manufacturing.
  • Co-ordinating the donations of supplies, particularly personal protective equipment, for frontline health staff.
  • Working with us to support the UK government initiative to manufacture ventilators.

We have been enormously heartened by your offers of help and interest in working with us on a wide range of worthwhile projects.

If you would like to partner with us, donate equipment or fund our research, please fill in this form, outlining your proposal. The information you provide will help us put you in touch with the right people as quickly as possible.
