Researchers Collaborate to Address COVID-19

The Joint Steering Council of the University of Maryland Strategic Partnership: MPowering the State (MPower), a formal collaboration of UMB and the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP), has awarded funding to five multidisciplinary research teams to respond to the impact of COVID-19 in Maryland and beyond. The Joint Steering Council issued the call for proposals to mobilize researchers at both institutions to bring solutions that would offer immediate action to address the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare for future pandemics. "Through MPower, we can bring together our significant and complementary research strengths to respond to this public health crisis," said UMCP provost and senior vice president Mary Ann Rankin, PhD, who also serves on the Joint Steering Council. "Our goal is to harness our collective faculty expertise to accelerate critical research that will reduce the impact of COVID-19."
