DLSU launches COVID-19 research portal

De La Salle University created a web portal featuring COVID-19-related research works, activities, and initiatives of faculty members, research centers, students, and other university units.

COVID-19 Research Portal provides a unified, centralized hub for research, knowledge transfer, and public engagement activities on the pandemic.

Currently, the portal includes the published journal article of School of Economics Associate Professor Dr. Krista Danielle Yu and Chemical Engineering Full Professor Dr. Kathleen Aviso titled “Modeling the Economic Impact and Ripple Effects of Disease Outbreaks,” Chemical Engineering Full Professor Dr. Michael Promentilla’s “Coronavirus: Ang Maso at ang Sayaw,” the Filipino version of “Coronavirus: The Hammer and the Dance,” and the Angelo King Institute policy brief on “Preparing for shortages of COVID-19 drugs: A data-based model for optimal allocation.”

The site also features the DLSU South East Asia Research Hub’s COVID-19 Percentage of Death and Recovery ratio table.

Also included are resources developed by faculty, students, and partner organizations that are relevant to the disease. These are the crowdsourcing tool to map COVID-19 symptoms developed by faculty and students from DLSU Laguna Campus and the Online Well-Being Self-Evaluation during the COVID-19 Outbreak by LifeRisks and HopeLab@DLSU.

The page will be updated on a regular basis as more research works are submitted by the academic community.

“In this unprecedented global crisis, DLSU remains committed to research, knowledge transfer, and public engagement. Our efforts are now targeted at mitigating the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and contributing new solutions in the coming months,” says Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation Dr. Raymond Girard Tan.

The portal may be accessed by visiting: https://www.dlsu.edu.ph/research/covid-19-research-portal/
