NSF RAPID grant awarded for study of how anxiety affects the spread of COVID-19 information

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. What the researchers find could help inform the design of campaigns to enhance communication of accurate information and decrease misinformation during times of crisis. Alin Coman, associate professor of psychology and public affairs, will lead the team.
