Deadline (EOI): COVID‑19 Immunity Task Force

The COVID-19 pandemic has been experienced unequally within countries and Canada is no exception. Most COVID-19 deaths in Canada have been in long-term care facilities, cases have clustered in select neighbourhoods and within the hardest hit provinces, and people whose jobs require routine direct interaction with the public appear at greater risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Understanding the factors that give rise to these “hot spots” is critical to informing the design and assessing the effectiveness of efforts aimed at reducing disproportionate risk to SARS-CoV02/COVID-19.

This request for expressions of interest is for population-based studies that will report on novel data relating to COVID-19 infection and immunity in three types of COVID-19 “hot spots”: 1) geographic areas, 2) long-term care facilities, 3) occupation groups.

If you are interested in pursuing this opportunity, please inform susan.haydt@dal.ca. Internal deadlines for the proposal stage will be announced at a later date.

Deadline for Expressions of Interest: September 21, 2020
