Abstract

Generating a research toolkit for the UK community by producing plasmids, virus isolates, antisera, reverse genetic systems, VLPs, and antibodies (in collaboration with MRC-PPU in Dundee) that will be openly shared to facilitate the work of the UK research community. Designing a variety of assays and tools to support the medium and high throughput screening of antiviral drugs to test efficacy against SARS-CoV-2.
