Since the emergence of COVID-19 in late 2019, HKUMed experts have been on the frontlines of tackling the crisis. We are now appealing for help with the challenge by launching our COVID-19 Research & Response Fund. The fund will allow members of the public, businesses, and other organisations to donate funds directly to the HKUMed’s COVID-19 related efforts.
As a global leader in infectious diseases research, HKUMed has been working tirelessly to increase scientific understanding of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus. This has included research into clinical care, diagnostics and testing, outbreak modelling and prediction, vaccine development, and more. We’ve also actively worked to increase public awareness of effective precautions and worked with governmental, public, and private organisations to try to limit the outbreak around the world. Our research labs, clinical facilities, and hospitals are facing the strain, and our unyielding efforts have created a need for additional funding.
If you would like to support our efforts, please consider making a donation to the HKUMed COVID-19 Research & Response Fund. Your donation will go towards the following areas of need:
By supporting the HKUMed COVID-19 Research & Response Fund you are joining a global community of students, staff, doctors, researchers, alumni, friends, and family all of whom are doing their part to help combat the current pandemic. Thank you for doing your part too!
