The Pasteur Foundation Asia (PFA), charitable organization established in Hong Kong that supports crucial scientific research, teaching and public health initiatives, started a fundraising campaign to support the response against the SARS-CoV-2.
With the goal of raising HKD5,000,000, the PFA will support technology transfer and sending material in the Asia-Pacific region and where people need them most. Those funds will also help current research on the SARS-CoV-2 in Hong Kong at HKU-Pasteur and across the Institut Pasteur International Network as well as supporting teaching to prepare future generations of scientists.
"We need to prepare ourselves for the long run and scientific knowledge is the answer." Roberto Bruzzone, Co-Director, HKU-Pasteur
