“The research community has shown remarkable resilience in this incredibly difficult time,” says Elizabeth Adams, Director of the Office of Research and Program Administration (ORPA). “The ORPA team, now 100% remote itself, has been inspired by how effectively research teams have worked off-site, including establishing new programs focused on the coronavirus. It’s heartening to see Princeton play a role in understanding and addressing the current health and societal crisis across a variety of academic disciplines.”

As of June 5, Princeton scholars had submitted 33 COVID-19-related proposals (17 more are pending) and 10 have already received more than $1.69M in funding.
