CoVaRR-Net brings together some of Canada’s most eminent researchers and experts in a variety of disciplines linked to emerging variants. By connecting this country’s best variants of concern-related research labs, this network ensures a rapid and coordinated response to this complicated facet of the pandemic.
Our team is structured by theme or “Pillars” which study and analyze a different biological aspect of variants. Pillar Leads are responsible for overseeing all Pillar activities and are supported by Deputies, who are experts in varied relevant disciplines, as well as research coordinators and research associates.
We also have a team organizing shared resources and a team providing outreach, policy, and public health communication.
Our Executive Committee is comprised of the Executive Director, the Director of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), the Communications Director, and the eight Pillar Leads.
