As Pandemic Persists, TAU Forges Ahead with COVID-19 Research on All Fronts
The University’s Center for Combating Pandemics leads research efforts in a range of fields
As the COVID-19 pandemic nears the end of a second year, Tel Aviv University is maintaining its fast pace of scientific discovery in the global battle against coronavirus.
Building on the University’s innovation record, TAU in 2020 launched the TAU’s Center for Combating Pandemics. The Center harnesses the collective power of academia, hospitals, government and industry to promote research and guide government policy. It is the first entity of its kind in Israel, and potentially the world.
Members of the Center include more than 100 research groups comprised of top TAU experts from all scientific disciplines across campus. Among them, over 60 researchers have, until now, conducted projects related to COVID-19.
