COVID-19 Research Watch

We are a group of volunteer undergraduate and doctoral students from the University of California, San Francsco (UCSF), Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), and University of California, Los Angeles focused on summarizing current COVID-19 research and translating these into Spanish, to facilitate the rapid dissemination of information to the global community. From this bi-national collaboration, we have created an online, searchable database (, an English e-newletter, and a Spanish e-newsletter. These weekly e-newsletters include the most recent summaries we have written, links to the original research, AND a comprehensive global update on COVID-19 epidemiology and news. What more could you ask for?! Please sign up for our English and Spanish newsletters and as always, feel free use our database to keep updated on recent research (not to mention, easily find papers to support manuscript writing or complete brief scoping reviews!).
