MassCPR is a multi-institutional effort formed in early March to address both the immediate implications of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the long-term need for enhanced preparedness for emerging pathogens. This effort involves scientists across 15 Boston-area universities, medical schools, research institutes and teaching hospitals from a variety of disciplines, including virology, immunology, microbiology, epidemiology, pathology, diagnostics and therapeutics development, computational biology, and clinical medicine.

The formation of MassCPR was enabled by a research agreement between Harvard University and the China Evergrande Group, with support being shared equally between Massachusetts-based researchers and colleagues at the Guangzhou Institute of Respiratory Health in China.
