Strong together in the fight against the corona virus

We are living in unusual times. The developments with respect to the corona virus outbreak are keeping us all busy. The consequences of this disease concern us deeply, and the measures considerably restrict our freedom. Fortunately, there are also positive developments at this time.

The current situation calls on our creativity and promotes a sense of togetherness. The fundraising foundations of the Amsterdam UMC -  the VUmc Fonds and the AMC Foundation - have taken immediate action in establishing the ‘Corona Research Fonds van het Amsterdam UMC’ (Amsterdam UMC Corona Research Fund). Supported by VU Amsterdam, UvA, AUF and VUvereniging, the entire Amsterdam academic world is joining forces to combat corona.

With this fund they want to support scientists and doctors associated with Amsterdam UMC in new and urgent scientific research in the fight against the coronavirus. This is research that is essential now. Amsterdam UMC is contributing to the research itself, and our own Executive Board and VUvereniging is starting this fund off by both making € 25,000 available immediately.

Will you also help the researchers of Amsterdam UMC in their fight against the corona virus?
