CTSI pilots, other efforts speed COVID-19 research

Amid the worst public health emergency in a lifetime, UF Health leaders have taken steps to speed novel coronavirus research, recognizing the urgent need to provide answers and options to the communities they serve. There are two key components of this effort: IRB retooled its approval process for coronavirus trials, and the CTSI set up a $2 million pilot research fund for scientists with translational projects that can be rapidly mobilized.
