The coronavirus that began as an emerging crisis has fully emerged: Nearly 40 million sickened, more than a million deaths worldwide. Beating this pandemic will take the combined efforts of dedicated individuals and persistent collaborations.
Whether within our own research program or as a leader of the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition—which has grown to more than 1,000 members—we’re pioneering several key initiatives. We’re deeply involved in the fight to collect enough convalescent plasma for vaccine research and therapeutic treatments. Our expert modelers have pivoted from researching potential outbreaks to providing data and analysis that inform decisions for this very real pandemic.
Even as we apply our vital skills to the efforts, each of us has adapted and dealt with the virus in personal ways. Are your kids back at school? Is remote learning right for your child? Our scientists offer guidance to K-12 schools and their communities.
How is your workplace handling your health and safety? What’s effective? What’s not? We have adapted our own practices for our employees to enhance their experience in this challenging time.
We know by now the world isn’t waiting for one answer, but for many. MITRE has never lost hope as we continue to focus on being part of the solution.
