UW ITHS COVID-19 Research Review Working Group
The UW ITHS COVID-19 Research Review Working Group was formed to implement a systematic review process for proposals submitted to the University of Washington. As the availability of clinical samples and persons with or at risk for COVID-19 may not satisfy all requests, this working group was tasked with determination of research priorities.
This working group adhered to these primary goals:
To provide a fair and transparent system for scientific review and prioritization for COVID-19 research at UW.
To ensure that research conducted is both of high priority and of high quality.
To facilitate COVID-19 research that will benefit patient care.
