Princeton researchers have been awarded a National Science Foundation RAPID grant to study how anxiety about COVID-19 influences how we learn and share information about the pandemic.
The NSF's Rapid Response Research (RAPID) program funds proposals that require quick-response research on disasters and unanticipated events.
What the researchers find could help inform the design of campaigns to enhance communication of accurate information and decrease misinformation during times of crisis.
