Robbins and Cantwell discuss University research investments amid COVID-19
University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins speaks with Elizabeth R. "Betsy" Cantwell, senior vice president of research and innovation, about the University's COVID-19 research activity in a video posted Tuesday.
Their 15-minute Zoom discussion, titled "Research Operations and Opportunities Amid COVID-19," covers the ways University researchers are directly addressing COVID-19 and how others are safely continuing or pausing non-COVID-19 research.
Robbins and Cantwell also discuss the state's Technology and Research Initiative Fund, which directs a portion of state sales tax to promote research, development and technology transfer at the state's public universities. At the University of Arizona, the funding has supported efforts related to health, national security and energy solutions.
