AAHCI-LAC Webinar | Impact of Research during COVID-19
AAHCI LAC regional office host University of São Paulo Medical School (FMUSP ) organized a Webinar on the “Impact of Research during COVID-19”. Research and development is a core function of academic health centers, and as the world is tackling the COVID-19 pandemic, many institutions have had to reprogram – or event shut down many – “non-essential” research projects in favor of work on the novel coronavirus. In some nations, there is concern about the impact of shifting attention away from research for other diseases, such as production of malaria, HIV, and tuberculosis tests. With lockdowns and resource shifting, there are limitations, challenges, and lessons learned for researchers which will be addressed in this Webinar of the LAC region, including a US perspective.
