CPR³ is focused on helping to improve the lives and livelihoods of all Californians 

The California Collaborative for Pandemic Recovery and Readiness Research (CPR³) funds policy-relevant public health research

CPR3 is dedicated to understanding the long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the individuals and communities throughout the state. To do this, CPR3 is working to prioritize and fund University of California (UC)-wide research into how the pandemic and pandemic response efforts have affected physical, mental, economic, educational, and social well-being. With a focus on collaboration across disciplines and equity, CPR3 brings together UC investigators, policy makers, public health experts, and community members.

This exciting new research initiative emphasizes both pandemic recovery – helping all Californians have a sense of renewed and/or improved wellbeing – and readiness in the face of future surges and pathogens. This approach recognizes that recovery and readiness are two key elements to ensuring long-term resilience throughout California.
