We're building a community of pandemic researchers who can collaborate on cutting-edge science, encourage resilience, and attack the next pandemic head on.

...our    podcast, Science Before the Storm!


When we speak of the next pandemic, it's no longer a question of "if" but "when". The NSF research community is uniquely placed to ensure that multidisciplinary and cutting-edge science is applied to real-time real-world situations. Join us as we talk to the scientists at the heart of these innovations - and through our special "researcher match" episodes, we hope to spark new ideas and collaborations among researchers.

This is Science before the Storm.


...and these other organizations!

To tackle financial crime and public health emergencies, the UK-US Privacy-Enhancing Technology challenge is using synthetic datasets created by UVA’s Network Systems Science and Advanced Computing (NSSAC) Division

The challenge is focused on accelerating the adoption and development of privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs). In particular, the two challenges focus on using privacy-preserving federated learning to transform financial crime prevention and boost pandemic response capabilities. The NSSAC team at UVA's Biocomplexity Institute has generated the two synthetic population datasets provided in the pandemic response challenge.
