Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Chief Scientist Office (CSO) of Scottish Government, NHS Research Scotland (NRS) and Health Board R&D Offices are working closely, and in collaboration with equivalents across the UK nations, to enable and deliver research into COVID-19.

Urgent public health research into COVID-19 continues. However, as we enter a new phase of the current pandemic, where the number of new cases of COVID-19 is declining, the time is right to work towards the restoration of a diverse portfolio of health and social care research across Scotland.  

The Chief Scientist Office will monitor restart across Scotland.
