The initial rise of COVID-19 cases in British Columbia brought a swift closure to my research lab, along with all university research labs. Fortunately, with new safety measures quickly implemented at Providence Health Care and the desire to contribute to the fight against COVID-19, our closure was relatively short-lived. Students, fellows, and staff returned early in the pandemic to assist with new COVID-19 focused projects.
