CoVaRR-Net receives $9M grant extension to continue research on variants

December 20, 2021
The Coronavirus Variants Rapid Response Network (CoVaRR-Net) has received a $9M grant extension from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). The network consists of 90 teams across Canada, and is led by Dr Marc-André Langlois of the University of Ottawa. “Scientists around the world have seen how important it is to quickly share findings and engage with interdisciplinary scientists to study SARS-CoV-2 variants from various perspectives,” said Langlois. “This renewed funding from the CIHR will allow our Network to continue this vital work, particularly at this time when Omicron is causing so much concern.” Eurekalert (National)
