Collaborate with the research of the Covid-19
There is still no specific treatment for combating COVID-19. For this reason, more than 140 Vall d’Hebron researchers are focusing their efforts on learning as much as possible about the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We can only put an end to it by working together and combining our efforts.
What are we doing at Vall d’Hebron?
A versatile and multi-disciplinary team comprising professionals from 28 different research groups (epidemiologists, internal medicine specialists, geneticists, virologists, immunologists, molecular biologists, etc.) and 31 Clinical Departments of the Hospital Vall d’Hebron are working intensively to learn more about this new virus.

What do we want to achieve?
This research has 7 specific objectives and areas of action:
To understand and anticipate how the virus spreads through the population. This information will help to plan the measures to be implemented at any given time.
To determine why some people with the infection present no or mild symptoms, while for others it can be life-threatening.
To identify whether there are more contagious or virulent strains of the virus.
To generate new, effective, rapid and cheap ways to detect the virus.
To develop drugs that block the virus from entering cells. These would prevent the virus from spreading through the body.
To check the effect of drugs that are already known to be effective in the treatment of other conditions.
To work on the development of a safe and effective vaccine against SARS-CoV-2
COVID-19 continues to affect us all. We will not stop working as long as this is the case. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of all our professionals, the collaborative work that we enjoy with other research centres and hospitals and the support and generosity of institutions, organisations, businesses and private individuals, we can bring an end to the virus.
Achieving more together
It is only by joining forces that we will be able to bring an end to this pandemic.
You can also be part of the solution.
