Support research

Many resources are needed to map out and block the spread of the pandemic, and to find more effective treatments as well as assisting patients, you too can contribute.

«The entire planet is experiencing a crucial moment in facing the Covid-19 pandemic. This dangerous enemy is capable of spreading quickly without borders. But the virus can be stopped and defeated, with an equally global weapon, the power of science. And that’s why the University of Padua has launched a fundraiser to support research.

With a simple click we can help the work of the scientific community who are strenuously committed to analysing the virus by understanding it and fighting it. The relentless work that our University sees is at the forefront in making its own contribution by putting in place the deep scope of research that we are universally recognized for.

In the spirit of maximum collaboration, we have also made our laboratories available to the Veneto Region for the analysis of the tests that are being carried out and that will continue to be carried out. But in the fight against Coronavirus we can all do our part, together we will overcome this challenge, and we will emerge stronger and more united.»
