The Impact of COVID-19 on Research Labs

Since March 26th we have been surveying scientists around the world to understand the impact of COVID-19 on their research. Each Friday we field the survey to members of our online community The Science Advisory Board. For over 20 years The Science Advisory Board has been a vibrant community of tens of thousands of researchers and drug discovery scientists who have agreed to participate in our surveys, focus groups and interviews. We have just finished the third wave of our survey and have 2,320 unique respondents to our 14-question survey.
