COVID-19 Research

The research community in Singapore contributes to the fight against COVID-19 and initiates new research projects that aim to support the disease outbreak management and control in Singapore.

The following central depository comprises key information on all COVID-19 related research projects and is made accessible to the entire research community. The objective is to keep all researchers abreast of ongoing COVID-19 research work, so as to promote greater collaboration and reduce inadvertent duplicative effort, particularly where these involve the use of limited and precious resources such as clinical samples and expensive equipment.
