Scientific Taskforce


The UMCG and UG have joined forces in setting up the Scientific Corona Task Force. This interdisciplinary group of researchers will work on the scientific questions this crisis raises. They bring together the various activities and research projects that are currently running and will be set up, in order to keep everyone up to date and make connections between different projects. The Task Force works on clinical solutions and medicines, as well as on the social, ethical, legal and systems aspects of the situation. Updates will be shared on this page.

Are you planning on performing Covid-19-specific research that requires access to facilities and resources at the UMCG? A special committee is evaluating all current applications and will advise the Dean of the UMCG, who is capable of providing special permission to work on this subject in the lab.

If you want to apply to perform Covid-related research, please send an email to BureauOnderzoek All research requests will then be forwarded to the scientific committee. All research projects that are granted permission to start will be published on the O&O Corona-website and the Aletta website.
