COVID-19 Research Innovation Fund

One of UCI's primary concerns is the health and well-being of our community, and we send our thoughts to all those impacted by COVID-19.


During this unprecedented time, your support is more important now than ever. By making a gift to the COVID-19 Research Innovation fund, you can help advance critical research and community initiatives.


Researchers across UCI have accelerated their efforts to minimize the spread and impact of COVID-19. Your gift to the COVID-19 Research Innovation Fund will support some of their most promising, high-impact work.


Your gift to this fund can help:

  • Develop new COVID-19 diagnostic tests for rapid screening

  • Advance possible COVID-19 vaccines

  • Scale up research for emerging infectious diseases

  • Study the pathogenesis of coronaviruses

  • Fund the School of Medicine’s Biosafety Level 3 (BSL-3) laboratory, the only BSL-3 lab in the UC system
