Faculty, students and staff in the School of Engineering and Applied Science are collaborating with colleagues across the University, the region and the world to answer critical questions about the virus and to provide support to front-line doctors and nurses. Here we collect stories about research initiatives and results, as well as just a few examples of other ways in which the engineering community has stepped up to help.
