The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has awarded $7.7 million to the University of Arizona to find out how long COVID-19 immunity lasts. UArizona was chosen due to its widespread antibody testing that will help in the research. Lead investigator of the study, Dr. Jeff Burgess, BIO5 member and associate dean of research at the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, said the study will include frontline workers such as grocery store employees, restaurant workers, bus drivers, and many others.
