Center for COVID-19 Response and Pandemic Preparedness (CCRP2)

The Rutgers University Center for COVID-19 Response and Pandemic Preparedness (CCRP2) serves as an institutional hub for COVID-19 research activities and information dissemination.

CCRP2, part of the Institute for Infectious and Inflammatory Diseases, was created to quickly respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic and to stimulate transformative solutions for challenges at the local, national and international levels.

Led by Dr. David Alland, the CCRP2 seeks to advance scientific breakthroughs in basic, translational and clinical COVID-19 research from world-class research institutes and the multidisciplinary research community within Rutgers University.

To accomplish these goals, we are ...

  • Creating intramural funding opportunities for biomedical and social science COVID-19 research at Rutgers University
  • Facilitating multidisciplinary clinical and translational research collaborations between COVID-19 clinicians and academic researchers within the Rutgers community
  • Developing, maintaining and sharing institutional resources for biomedical COVID-19 research
  • Providing Biosafety Level-3 training and research facilities for COVID-19 researchers
  • Showcasing research accomplishments from Rutgers COVID-19 investigators
  • Fostering collaborations with the private sector to translate discoveries and bring relief to COVID-19 patients
