Our community of experts at UBC Applied Science have rapidly mobilized in response to the global pandemic, leading vital initiatives to help fight the spread of COVID-19.
Promising projects that need immediate funding are currently underway including:
Developing low-cost ventilators that can be assembled locally and easily adopted by developing countries across the globe
A nursing initiative to distribute iPads attached by an articulated arm to repurposed hospital equipment to help patients stay connected with family and friends
The use of robotics in expediting the production of face shields to protect front-line health workers
Testing N95 mask decontamination using germicidal ultra-violet irradiation technology, moist heat and other methods so they can be safely reused
Donate today to accelerate the critical development of life-saving solutions and technologies that can be deployed worldwide.
