2020 COVID Response: Jump Simulation Projects

A Rapid and Affordable Virus Test for Early Warning of a Pandemic

This initiative will develop a test kit that extracts nucleic acid sequences from a sample of blood or saliva which are amplified with primers and new technology that can look for biomarkers of the virus using colorimetry so detection by naked eyes is possible. Researchers hope to develop an all-in-one test kit costing no more than $5 USD.


Converting a Microwave Oven into a Mask Sterilization Unit

This proposal will investigate the effectiveness for sterilization and disinfection to offer additional research to initial reports that indicate microwaves can be an effective microbicide.


Data Driven Analytics to Predict the Dynamics of the COVID 19 Outbreak and the Impact on Healthcare Providers, Resources, and Communities

This project proposes to use a novel analytical approach which incorporates artificial intelligence, data analytics, and machine learning to drive solutions to improve outcomes of the COVID-19 virus.


Rapid, Contactless Vital Signs Collection Using Computer Vision and Consumer Technologies

The goal of the proposal is to develop a computer vision algorithm for rapidly assessing an individual’s key vital signs (temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure) relevant to COVID-19 utilizing a consumer grade camera.


Secure Federated Learning for Collaborative Diagnostics

This proposal leverages modern cryptographic tools to introduce a computational and software features for securely training predictive models using huge data sets distributed over several medical establishments; while ensuring patient privacy.


Testing the Filtration Efficiency of N95 Respirators for Health-Care Employees and Protecting Public Health in Pandemic Flu Emergencies

This project proposes to solve the problem of quality assurance testing for Do-It-Yourself or rapidly made personal protective equipment (PPE).


The COVID-19 Keeping Safe Program

To help communities open back up in the safest way possible, this platform will expand on the OSF Pandemic Health Worker Program for more extensive monitoring of individuals before, during, and after exposure to COVID-19.


Ventilator Duplication Kit

Aims to develop a rapidly deployable kit for using a single ventilator among multiple patients with varying ventilation needs by tailoring the delivered breaths to each individual.
