The SARS-CoV-2 animal model data that are emerging will help JHU researchers select the most relevant COVID-19 animal models. The COVID-19 Animal Models team is tracking all planned JHU COVID-19 studies that require animal models because the logistics of performing in vivo studies will be complex. The Biosafety office, the ACUC, RAR, and SKCCC Animal Resources, will work together to facilitate these studies in JHU Animal Biosafety Level (ABSL)-3 facilities. The team is also catalyzing collaborations and interdisciplinary approaches by connecting investigators to other research groups at JHU.

This committee was established to review and prioritize all COVID-19 clinical research. This streamlined resource includes an Emergency Response IRB and the development of a biospecimen repository.
