Rapid Response Grants

CrisisReady supports and sustains the practical engagement of academic researchers in response to disasters and public health emergencies by providing small, fast-tracked grants which enable academics to devote focused time and attention to key problems in data, methods, and translational readiness.

Our first two Rapid Response Grants were awarded in Fall 2020 to Dr. Pamela Martinez of the University of Illinois for her ongoing research into mobility patterns and the epidemiology of Covid-19 in Chile, and to Dr. Amy Wesolowski of Johns Hopkins University for her work using travel surveys to ground truth human mobility patterns to understand key behavioral factors related to physical distancing policies and the control of Covid-19 in the United States.
