Data at a Distance

Like a lot of other folks, stay-at-home scientists find themselves working in the company of pets and children.

On March 17th, 2020, Duke University asked its research scientists (apart from essential clinical research) to curtail all laboratory activity and begin working from home as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A week earlier, classes had been moved to online learning, beginning March 23. Duke scientists from every field have found ways to continue their teaching, analyses, and grant-writing from their home offices. There are no labs or fieldwork, but science marches on.
