In parallel to the rapid global spread of COVID-19 disease, there has also been an explosion of research related to coronavirus from investigators around the world. Since January, there have been more than 1,500 journal articles published about COVID-19 [Chen 2020]. The nearly 4,000 authors of these articles come from different countries and numerous fields (infectious disease, genetics, immunology, epidemiology, etc.); and, most of them have never worked together before. Though, what they all have in common is a desire to help stop the pandemic and relevant expertise and/or resources.
This project supports this expanding community of COVID-19 researchers by leveraging an open source program called Harvard Catalyst “Profiles” to create a website that contains searchable online profiles of every COVID-19 researcher worldwide.
