The fight against epidemics takes place beyond the hospital grounds.
It is fought by institutions and people, pulling together, pushing forward—practical and deliberate. The START Coalition is dedicated to test, treat, trace, and train; to study and establish a proven and scalable method of containment.
An exceptional set of healthcare clinicians, researchers, public-sector leaders, private-sector leaders, and entrepreneurs have combined the efforts required to reliably return people to work, to restore economic and social vitality, to reclaim normalcy.
Start has formed a robust panel of experts—physicians, philanthropists, entrepreneurial powerhouses, organizations, and individuals spanning a wide range of education, research, and commercial operations. We have partnered with experts from Duke and Harvard Medical, Purdue Research Foundation, Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences and The University of Alabama to deploy, evaluate and share a suite of pragmatic interventions, creating safe communities, underpinned by data-directed implementation.
