The Coronavirus outbreak has a profoundly effect on the daily practice of Amsterdam UMC personnel in a relatively short time frame. However, the many promising initiatives taken by our personnel show enormous adaptive power, creativity and perseverance. Not only the doctors, nurses and supporting staff work around the clock to provide the best care for our patients. Also, behind the scenes, many researchers have joined forces to battle COVID-19 in an agile manner and without any reluctance. The way in which Amsterdam UMC researchers have responded to the pandemic has demonstrated the importance of team science in trying to make this worldwide crisis manageable.

Save the date: Amsterdam UMC COVID-19 research event on 3 December 2020
During this online event for Amsterdam UMC researchers and other relations, we want to emphasize how this COVID-19 crisis creates such a vibrant sense of urgency and solidarity among Amsterdam UMC researchers that unorthodox teams were formed accelerating COVID-19 research. So save the date and join us during this event on 3 December 2020.
This event, entitled Amsterdam UMC & COVID-19: Unorthodox Teams, Accelerating Science, will illustrate the dozens of meaningful research projects that arose in Amsterdam UMC since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Using the patient journey as a central thread, many research topics and teams will be highlighted covering the epidemiology, virulence & pathogenesis, and treatment & prevention of COVID-19.
And as a participant you are invited to ask all your questions regarding COVID-19 research. We will soon send you a questionnaire to collect some of your questions in advance. More details on the program will soon be published on the Amsterdam Research website.
