<p>Research is essential to advance knowledge of emerging and reemerging infectious diseases and to improve the effectiveness of therapies and the quality of care for all patients. Indeed, with more than 12 million individuals infected and nearly 560,000 deaths worldwide at the beginning of July 2020, research is critical to identify and minimize the devastating effects of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 in both the adult and pediatric populations. The morbidity and mortality statistics alone demand immediate attention. Research on a vaccine and on life-saving therapeutics, including antiviral regimens, is the highest priority currently. And, there is still much we need to learn about the pathogenicity of the virus and the variations in its severity and clinical course.</p>
