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

The California Collaborative for Pandemic Recovery and Readiness 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 has created the infrastructure to identify priority research areas, fund studies to conduct equity-focused research, and provide support for community engagement and evidence translation. Through this infrastructure, CPR³ has funded University of California (UC)-led research that will help fill knowledge gaps within priority areas. With a focus on collaboration across disciplines and equity, CPR3 brings together UC investigators, policy makers, public health experts, and community members.

This exciting initiative emphasizes both pandemic recovery and readiness – two key elements to ensuring long-term resilience throughout California.


CPR³ funds policy-relevant public health research

More than 30 equity-focused research projects led by interdisciplinary teams representing all 10 UC campuses have been awarded through the CPR3 program. Totaling over $6M, funded projects are a foundational element of the overall CPR3 initiative.
