Resources for researchers
Since the start of the pandemic, researchers at Karolinska Institutet have published almost 1,000 scientific articles on different aspects of COVID-19. Their important work continues, but now perhaps under more normal conditions. On this page we still present some of the resources that were created for researchers during the acute faze of the pandemic in the beginning of 2020.
National portal for COVID-19 research
The Swedish COVID-19 Data Portal provides information, guidelines, tools and services to support researchers in utilising Swedish and European infrastructures for data sharing, in particular the European COVID-19 Data Portal. The Swedish portal is coordinated by SciLifeLab and the Swedich Research Council.
SciLifeLab prioritise COVID-19 projects
The national, government-funded research infrastructure SciLifeLab are now prioritising projects regarding the new coronavirus and COVID-19. Contact them and find out more.
KI is establishing a Centre for Health Crises
On 1 July 2021, a new virtual centre – the Centre for Health Crises – will be established at Karolinska Institutet. The COVID-19 pandemic has indicated that in the event of acute health threats and pandemics, universities and colleges must be able to quickly change their research, education, and other activities to help solve urgent needs.
Digital meeting-spot for COVID-19 researchers
The digital innovation platform Crowdhelix Network has started an international meeting spot for researchers and companies ready to tackle the ongoing pandemic. The COVID-19 group within Crowdhelix is led by Karolinska Institutet.
ScienceBusiness Coronavirus Gateway
The Coronavirus R&D Gateway is a resource for researchers, companies, policymakers and the interested public at large. It has been created in cooperation with several partner organisations, including Karolinska Institutet.
Biosafety level 3 labs ready for SARS-CoV-2
The COVID-19 Immune Atlas
The Karolinska KI/K COVID-19 Immune Atlas aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the human immune response in COVID-19 disease, freely available for scientists in academia, other organisations, and industry.
SARS-CoV-2 related proteins
The Human Protein Atlas is a Swedish-based project with the aim to map all the human proteins in cells, tissues and organs using integration of various omics technologies. KI is a partner in this effort, which now also lists proteins related to SARS-Cov-2.
