COVID-19 Donations

UCLA Health encompasses both the UCLA Health System and the David Geffen School of Medicine.  The Department of Computational Medicine is proud to be part of the UCLA Health response to COVID-19. COVID-19 is an unprecedented crisis and the institution desperately needs your support.

How you can help

Philanthropic gifts or fundraising efforts are critical investments in the fight against COVID-19. Your contribution will enable UCLA Health to both develop technologies to fight this disease as well as to provide needed resources for patient care.

If you are interested in supporting research and technology projects such as STOP COVID-19 TOGETHER, then please donate to the Computational Medicine Department general fund.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, this fund will support research and technology development projects in the department, as well as related efforts in UCLA Health.

If you are interested in research on vaccine development, pathogenesis and transmission of the coronavirus, or the development and scaling up of novel diagnostic tests and therapeutics, UCLA Health has developed a new COVID-19 Research & Education Fund.

If you want your gift to support COVID-19 patient care or obtaining personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline healthcare workers, UCLA Health has developed a new COVID-19 Patient Care and PPE fund. Information on in-kind donations for PPE is available here.

If you are interested in crowdfunding one of our COVID-19 response efforts, consider creating a UCLA Health Personal Fundraising page to share with your friends and family. 

The Department of Computational Medicine’s work on COVID-19 projects builds on its close collaboration with the UCLA Health System.  Projects in the AI in Medicine and Genomics + Health programs span many disease areas and are being deployed in the health system to transform patient care.  If you have an interest in being informed and involved in the department’s efforts, please reach out to department chair Eleazar Eskin to discuss your interest in our research and opportunities for collaboration and giving.
