The Center for Industrial Research and Service (CIRAS) will be Iowa State’s primary point of contact for manufacturing requests related to COVID-19 health care needs. Faculty and staff who receive such a request should send it to so it can be logged and reviewed. CIRAS will coordinate assistance as appropriate.

Faculty and staff who have a desire to help and the relevant research capabilities — such as medical device manufacturing, rapid factory changeover or 3-D printing — should contact Jake Behrens,
