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:

Covid Conversations Podcast
Covid Conversations is 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.
Student Research Opportunities
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.
