The CRC is Commited to the Fight Against Covid19

A dozen teams are actively engaged in research projects on COVID-19. These projects focus on the immune mechanisms involved, the specific impact on certain organs (the kidney), possible treatments in healthy or diabetic subjects, public health aspects (prevention, représentations, medical practices and associated risks), and data modeling at the international level.



Most of the projects were started in late March or early April. They are financed by own funds and/or by ANR Flash grants. Almost all of them are conducted in collaboration with hospital, APHP or national teams, and some of them involve international collaborations.
