COVID-19 & Infectious Diseases

SUNY is at the forefront of national efforts to combat COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. Across SUNY's 64 campuses, more than 500 active research projects are drawing upon multi-disciplinary expertise at the convergence of medical, health, and life sciences, pharma, engineering, and social sciences. Clinical trials are focused on preventives and treatments for healthcare workers and patients. Testing, surveillance, and monitoring solutions borne from our research are being implemented across SUNY to enable our campuses to operate safely. Our faculty are participating in national research efforts and providing thought leadership on prominent New York State task forces.
