Support research projects with ties to COVID-19 at the University of Ottawa.
Our researchers are working hard to understand the workings of COVID-19
  • Dr. Tracey O’Sullivan is expanding her ground-breaking work on aging-in-place in the context of COVID-19, researching how living in one’s home safely, independently, and comfortably regardless of age, income, or ability, can help alleviate the pressures on formal care services during public health crises.
  • Dr. Stephanie Gaudet is studying how to support young people — who increasingly are suffering from psychological distress at this moment — by giving them the tools to innovate and participate in social and political life, and to help build a better society post-Covid-19.
  • Dr. Robert Delatolla and a research team at the University of Ottawa Faculty of Engineering are perfecting wastewater testing to detect levels of coronavirus and other virus in the community.

Your gift to our COVID-19 research fund will provide a flexible and agile source of funding for these and many more projects.

Even a small gift will go a long way.

Thank you for your generosity in a time of collective hardship. Your support matters now more than ever.
