Abstract

Our COVID-19 research strategy takes a comprehensive and collaborative approach to research under five key themes. Theme 2 is "Immunity and immunopathology - testing and mechanisms", how can we tell who's already had the virus and why are some cases so much worse than others? Setting up several serological platforms to enable the testing for prevalence of infection in the population and to determine correlates for protection. These will be developed for simultaneous detection of antibodies to understand which immune parameters are adequately predictive.
