Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $925,000 to the Broad Institute to support research led by Stacey Gabriel on the development, validation, and clinical testing of COVID-19 diagnostic tests. The funding will allow the Broad Institute, in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Partners Healthcare, and other clinical sites, to increase capacity for COVID-19 diagnostic testing and conduct clinical tests for tens of thousands of patients.

This falls within our work on scientific research, specifically within our interest in science supporting biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
