The focus of R3T is to collaborate with and strongly support the Kingdom's healthcare stakeholders to help combat the spread of COVID-19.
KAUST teamed up with a global taskforce called The COVID Compass Taskforce. The taskforce consists of experts in science and technology.
We have moved to online teaching and a remote work paradigm. Our goals have been both alignment with, and leadership of, the Saudi response to COVID-19.
Racing to understand
Scientists are racing to understand the mechanisms of transmission, the most effective testing methods, and how we can all cope with the COVID-19 crisis. In this episode, we talk to a Saudi doctoral student about the highs and lows of sample collection, and we get an insider’s look into the AI that just might give clinicians a leg up in the fight against COVID-19
The World after the Corona Virus
