Tulane responds to COVID-19


Front Lines: COVID-19 - John Barry, an adjunct professor at Tulane University’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and author of "The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History," discusses containing COVID-19 with lessons learned from the 1918 influenza pandemic. 

A number of departments across Tulane University are actively responding to the 2019 - 2020 outbreak of COVID-19. Researchers in the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, School of Medicine, National Primate Research Center, and Science and Engineering are addressing the disease on several fronts, from immediate response and containment, modeling to anticipate the disease spread, to development of a vaccine and treatments against the virus. 

We have also created a COVID-19 aggregate daily called Tulane Outbreak Daily at tulaneoutbreakdaily.org. It features headlines, surveillance news, international updates, travel updates, publications, and some pre-publication information. You can subscribe to Tulane Outbreak Daily here.
