Medical leaders in Western New York are joining forces to better understand the COVID-19 virus and how it works.
The Western New York Immunogenomic COVID-19 Study, unites three leading regional healthcare organizations; Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, Catholic Health and the University at Buffalo. The goal of this initiative is to advance our understanding of COVID-19.
A fund has been set-up to help support this initiative, with 11 Day Power Play Inc., providing a $150,000 toward the project’s estimated cost of $1 million.
“The 11 Day Power Play organization has always supported the cutting-edge cancer research preformed at Roswell Park. The research they are doing in immunotherapy amid this pandemic has the greatest potential to save lives. On behalf of the 11 Day Power Play community, we are proud to help launch this critical research,” says Amy Lesakowski, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The 11 Day Power Play.
