COVID-19 Diagnostics and Testing

Identifying exposed, infectious, and recovered individuals is essential for fighting this pandemic and starting to normalize the economy and society. We need methods both to detect the virus itself and the antibodies to it. Columbia’s researchers are leading efforts to make these tests more accurate, faster, cheaper, and more accessible.
