Abstract

Our COVID-19 research strategy takes a comprehensive and collaborative approach to research under five key themes. Theme 4 is "Clinical epidemiology and clinical management in well subjects", how is coronavirus transmitted and is it evolving? Can lifestyle and ethnicity make the disease more severe? Applying molecular viral typing to trace the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 viral strains and correlating data on infection with individual parameters of susceptibility in order to better understand the factors that define viral spread in different settings. Focus of work will be on 1. Viral transmission and evolution, 2. Influence of the host immune response on disease outcome and 3. Mechanisms of viral-induced organ damage and death.
