De La Salle University launched its web portal listing the research works, activities, and initiatives of faculty members, research centers, students, and other university units concerned with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
The COVID-19 Research Portal gathers research, knowledge, and initiatives related to the pandemic in one place. It does so with the aim of making information more readily available to the wider public.
“Currently, the portal includes the published journal article of School of Economics associate professor Dr. Krista Danielle Yu and chemical engineering full professor Dr. Kathleen Aviso titled ‘Modeling the Economic Impact and Ripple Effects of Disease Outbreaks;’ chemical engineering full professor Dr. Michael Promentilla’s ‘Coronavirus: Ang Maso at ang Sayaw,’ the Filipino version of ‘Coronavirus: The Hammer and the Dance;’ and the Angelo King Institute policy brief on “Preparing for shortages of COVID-19 drugs: A data-based model for optimal allocation,” DLSU explains.
The portal also includes the DLSU South East Asia Research Hub’s COVID-19 Percentage of Death and Recovery ratio table, a COVID-19 crowdsourced mapping tool, and the Online Well-Being Self-Evaluation during the COVID-19 Outbreak.
“In this unprecedented global crisis, DLSU remains committed to research, knowledge transfer, and public engagement. Our efforts are now targeted at mitigating the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and contributing new solutions in the coming months,” writes vice chancellor for research and innovation Dr. Raymond Tan.
