(Scripps Research Institute) Scripps Research is collaborating with Johns Hopkins University and UCLA to develop better statistical models and visualization software for COVID-19. The project has won a $1.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, with operations based out of the Scripps Research-led Center for Viral Systems Biology. The funding supplements an initial $15 million NIH grant that enabled Andersen to launch the center in 2018, with the goal of helping eradicate infectious diseases such as Ebola and Lassa.
