Abstract

The research group will aim to develop the basic technology for use in rapid diagnostic test kits for SARS-CoV-2. The group will focus on molecular and antibody based diagnostic technologies such as RT-LAMP, SARS-CoV-2 antigen detection assay, and anti-viral antibody detection assay. The group will also conduct viral genome analysis using clinical samples to develop robust diagnostic tests for SARS-CoV-2
