When the coronavirus pandemic shut TRU’s campuses in March, many faculty and students were forced to pause or to redesign their ongoing research projects to ensure physical distancing. 

Many of our researchers also jumped in to assist by adapting, changing and launching innovative projects to contribute knowledge designed to help us navigate through a pandemic and answer vitally important questions.
