The COVID-19 pandemic has become the leading societal concern. The pandemic has shown that the public health
concern is not only a medical problem, but also afects society as a whole; so, it has also become the leading scientifc
concern. We discuss in this treatise the importance of bringing the world’s scientists together to fnd efective solu‑
tions for controlling the pandemic. By applying novel research frameworks, interdisciplinary collaboration promises to
manage the pandemic’s consequences and prevent recurrences of similar pandemics.
