The UC Vice Chancellors of Research are circulating the following survey in support of the Governor’s request to increase California’s COVID-19 diagnostics sample testing capabilities. As the State and UC discuss various scenarios to resuming operations, there is a recognized need to greatly increase our ability to test individuals and determine whether they have been exposed and/or have developed antibodies to the SARS CoV-2 agent. This brief survey is intended to inventory and to highlight UC’s academic research laboratory capabilities in the important area of COVID-19 diagnostic testing, with an emphasis on ensuring local pathways for rapid results.

If you have an interest in your lab group supporting COVID-19 molecular diagnostic sample testing—or if your lab is already doing so—please complete the survey by clicking the link below:

Responses are Requested by 5 PM on May 15th
