“To make clinical and biological observations in a time-frame likely to benefit patients during disease outbreaks, coordination in global research must match the speed of spread of novel pathogens. Time is short. Circumstances compel us to work together, across the world, to understand, treat, and prevent COVID-19.“
This article aims to highlight how harmonisation of clinical investigation during outbreaks can be beneficial by facilitating data share, collaborative studies, peer review of shared protocols and compare results.
“Wide collaboration leads to better, faster science.“
