Stavros Niarchos Foundation donates $3 million to Rockefeller COVID-19 research

The Rockefeller University and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) have announced a $3 million expansion of their longstanding partnership for research and medicine, bolstering Rockefeller’s round-the-clock research initiatives related to COVID-19 and the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes it.

Since the arrival of the pandemic, 18 Rockefeller labs have turned their attention to COVID-19 research. Rockefeller’s research, which involves over 130 scientists working across disciplines, aims to develop urgently needed new approaches to preventing and treating the disease. The projects underway range from near-term efforts to prevent infection in front-line health care workers and reduce the severity of symptoms in vulnerable populations to longer-term strategies to develop therapeutics and vaccines.
