The COVID-19 pandemic has affected most aspects of the daily lives of Americans and people across the world. Marquette University, a research and student-focused institution, is in the unique position to bring together scholars from the Marquette community, including faculty, staff, and students, to address the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, how we got here, and the emerging trends and strategies to address the changing world.
The primary goal of this research initiative is to identify, and promote research performed by the Marquette community on the immediate and long-term issues and the impact on society related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This could involve small or large research collaborations, from new or existing interdisciplinary collaborative teams, or work led by individual investigators. The emphasis will be on achievable and feasible short- and long-term research projects or educational opportunities focused on the COVID-19 pandemic. This initiative will provide high-impact learning opportunities for Marquette graduate and undergraduate students through research of COVID-19 pandemic issues that will affect this generation for years to come. The Marquette initiative will complement the current Clinical and Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (CTSI) COVID-19 Research Initiative that is focused on clinical and health systems studies.
The Marquette COVID-19 Research Initiative is gaining significant traction. Projects, studies, podcasts, commentaries, webinars, and classes are in the making by teams and individuals. The outcomes are emerging. Learn about the latest developments and projects taking place through the COVID-19 Research Initiative:
Spring 2021 Lightning Talks:Watch the latest series of 5-minute lightning talks from Marquette researchers working on COVID-19 projects!
Short Survey: To help understand the work being done and the people involved we would appreciate you taking the time to fill out a short survey . This will allow us to obtain more information on current projects (research studies, education pursuits, humanities focused projects, community programming etc.) and those involved, including faculty, staff and students. Keep in mind that each survey submission is to represent one project. Thus, if you are involved in several projects, please arrange one submission for each project. If you are significantly associated with studies at other institutions (e.g. MCW) please include.

External Funding Opportunities
External funding opportunities associated with the COVID-19 pandemic can be found on the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) website.
Submit ideas & join teams
Marquette faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to submit their COVID-19 research ideas, projects, skill sets, and interests. Those with a Marquette VPN or network access can then search through our database to find individuals or teams to join forces with.
Covid Conversationsis an exciting project designed to highlight some of the research currently underway at Marquette, as well as share how our classes are exploring topics related to the pandemic and its impact on society. Our goal was to bring together an interdisciplinary group to reflect on a topic and then produce a podcast based on their conversation.
AHPRC Student Research Initiative - the AHPRC's SRI is designed to facilitate undergraduate and graduate research from different colleges across campus and support the mission and global goal of the AHPRC. Students are welcome to apply to conduct research in human performance and health-related areas, including COVID-19 pandemic research.
