The aim of this study was to analyze the performance, planning and flexibility of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Technology of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in response to the Corona Pandemic crisis to produce and disseminate evidence-based information. To this end, a call was announced and a new policy was arranged for review process. Due to the urgency of aggregating the evidence, the review process was done by the scientific team during a maximum of 72 and by the ethical team within 24 hours (excluding the time spent by the principal investigators), 64 research and technological projects were prioritized.
