ISARIC provides a collaborative platform through which global, patient‐oriented clinical studies can be developed, executed and shared.

Protocols addressing the most important questions between and during epidemics of severe acute respiratory infections and other rapidly emerging public health threats are undertaken in order to generate new knowledge, maximise the availability of clinical information, and thereby save lives.

In consultation with colleagues at WHO, we are reviewing the following protocols and data tools:

  • Clinical Characterization Protocol
  • Severe Acute Respiratory Infection Data Tools
  • Viral Haemorrhagic Fever Data Tools
  • Ebola Data Tools

If you want to use these research tools or if you require further information, please contact the ISARIC team.
