COVID-19 has altered almost all aspect of "normal" life. Our teams are working in the UK and around the world to address this truly global challenge. As noted by Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust, "Until we are all safe, no one is safe". 

The challenges of COVID-19 are many, from surveillance and diagnostics, to treatment and vaccines, to mental health and mourning, to economic and social recovery. You can learn all about all the ways our researchers are working to address all the issues surrounding COVID-19 on the University's dedicated COVID-19 research pages linked in the "Learn More" section and here you can learn how our teams are specifically tackling this challenge in the Global South.
