Abstract

The response to the global pandemic of SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19 disease has been an unprecedented mobilization of global scientific and medical effort in an unusual race for effective treatments and vaccines. Such a sense of urgency and intensity could however be potentially undermined without a general bigger picture of the whole landscape. In order to provide such an overall landscape, we set out to build a comprehensive tracker of global treatment and vaccine development on an interactive web application that presents a dynamic and up-to-date inventory of treatments and vaccines in various stages of clinical development. An additional layer of expert curation is applied to the raw data to categorize and curate treatments and vaccines to reveal intrinsic similarities and patterns. The combination of these features on the web application makes it a unique curated tracker that provides insights to a broad range of audiences from institutional organizers, research investigators, to general public.Availability: This curated web tracker is available at https://racetoacure.stanford.edu
