Weizmann Coronavirus Response Fund – You Can Help

The Weizmann Institute of Science has set up the Weizmann Coronavirus Response Fund which aims to raise approximately $25 million for the urgent dissemination of support to its scientists working on the front lines to find solutions.

Everyone in Australia and around the world have been invited to play a role in this solution and share in helping defeat this insideous disease.

By capitalising on the Weizmann Institute’s world-renown in basic science, the Fund will help expedite solutions to the global threat of SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19 disease.

Encompassing a range of efforts by numerous scientists who are stepping up to the plate to urgently search for solutions, the Fund will prioritise three areas: ramping up testing capacity, tracking outbreaks in the making, and advancing promising research initiatives toward treatments and potential vaccines.

Weizmann Institute management is doing its utmost to summon all possible resources to enable the science to move ahead.

The fund will prioritise these three areas:

Drugs and vaccines 
Tracking and data management
