Newly funded research network CoViPa (Corona Virus Pathogenesis)

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 has major global impact on human society, economy and daily life. Inspite of rapid progress in this field, the molecular determinants underlying COVID-19 pathogenesis remain unclear.

To gain knowledge about the virological and immunological drivers of COVID-19 pathogenesis and the parameters of immune protection, we united experts from 7 Helmholtz Centers and 3 university partners, to create an internationally competitive and interdisciplinary network called CoViPa that pursues two major goals:

  1. Determine the virological and immunological parameters underlying COVID-19 pathogenesis to define targeted therapies and inform vaccine development;
  2. Use SARS-CoV-2 as paradigm to gather knowledge and establish durable technology platforms for pandemic preparedness.

CoViPa is coordinated by the Helmholtz Association and comprises 21 principal investigators that are leaders in field.
