Vascular Surgery COVID-19 Collaborative (VASCC)

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vascular Surgery COVID-19 Collaborative (VASCC) was founded by Max Wohlauer, M.D. in March to assess the impact of COVID-19 on the care of patients with vascular disease. Currently, VASCC is beginning two studies to evaluate the effect of postponement of vascular surgery on patient outcomes around the world due the COVID-19.

Interested in collaborative research?  Do you have a collaborative research funding opportunity you would like to announce or are you searching for a collaborator on a specific proposal?   

Collaborations between research groups are growing, and the collaborating groups can be across the hall, University of Colorado campuses, the country, or the globe. Scholars or groups in different fields work together on interdisciplinary projects. 

The OVCR wants to offer this space on a bi-weekly basis for promotion of collaborative research funding opportunities (internal and external funding) and solicitations for prospective interdisciplinary collaborators for proposed funding applications.
