“At my institution, Stony Brook University, researchers are working with two national labs, DOE’s Brookhaven National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory, to develop a computer model to fast-track the discovery of drugs to treat COVID-19,” Brookmeyer notes.

Citing similar efforts by other institutions of higher learning nationwide, she argues that federal funding is critical in order to keep these long-term, life-changing research projects moving ahead.
