COVID-19 Research

Novel Coronavirus

NECAT is currently able to accept all proprietary and COVID-19 related research proposals such as those related to general immunity, off-label antivirals, and/or co-infection diseases.  If you have proprietary or a COVID-19 related project, please email Cyndi Salbego at to schedule time. Time is typically available within a few days.  

You will need to be a registered APS user and submit (or have an active) general user proposal. You should state that the research is related to SARS CoV-2 proteins or COVID-19. The Experimental Safety Approval Form (ESAF) should also indicate SARS CoV-2 or COVID-19. The designation of whether a project is COVID-19 related research is determined by you, the researcher.  In addition, all data collection must be performed remotely via our remote data collection GUI.  On-site users are currently not permitted at the APS.
