Supporting Newcastle University Research Teams in the battle against COVID-19

We are advancing public knowledge about COVID-19 and supporting the global fight to mitigate the impacts of this lethal new virus. 

At Newcastle University, we are combining our diverse research excellence to tackle COVID-19 and respond to this major global challenge. We are connecting creative discovery with impact for economic and societal benefit, working with partners to help develop a vaccine and new therapies for the virus. We are helping to scale up and speed up diagnostic tests. We are donating state-of-the-art equipment and helping to manufacture new equipment. We are working across disciplinary boundaries to understand the impact of the necessary restrictions imposed on our personal and working lives.

We are all deeply worried about our loved ones during this COVID-19 emergency, but for those who wish to, it's easy to support our efforts to combat this pandemic. Your support will allow our teams to go further, faster. You can donate to the COVID-19 Research Fund via the buttons above.

We have also opened an emergency fund for students affected by COVID-19 so their studies are disrupted as little as possible.

For those planning to donate from overseas please double check our International Giving guidance before doing so. 

Thank you for supporting the Newcastle University community.
