Released: April 6, 2020

Washington, DC – April 6, 2020 — The global COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented challenge. Every day, academic and government researchers are working tirelessly to find solutions that can be applied to new equipment and treatments — from clinical trials to face shields — needed to save lives.

In an effort to disseminate information about COVID-19 research being undertaken at academic and federal labs around the globe, AUTM and the Federal Laboratory Consortium are working together to track developments in the fight against the virus. That information is available for AUTM here and FLC here, and is updated daily.

Both organizations are encouraging labs to share their COVID updates on Twitter with the hashtag #COVID19Research and to post their technologies to the AUTM Innovation Marketplace where they are tagged with the keyword COVID and are searchable by the media.

AUTM CEO Dr. Stephen J. Susalka is available for interviews to discuss:

  • The critical role of academic and federal labs in addressing the pandemic
  • Real world examples of solutions being implemented now
  • How to further strengthen our innovation ecosystem to prepare for another pandemic
