Our COVID-19 research strategy takes a comprehensive and collaborative approach to research under five key themes. Theme 5 is "Clinical epidemiology and clinical management in vulnerable populations", how is coronavirus affecting cancer treatment and vulnerable people who need medical care? Aiming to understand the specific risks for vulnerable populations, including the interaction of SARS-CoV-2 infection with different types of cancer and with specific treatment modalities. This will address, 1. The impact of underlying health conditions, such as cancer, on the course of COVID-19, 2. The impact of anti-cancer interventions on the course of COVID-19 and 3. Protecting vulnerable populations in hospital by using large cohorts of cancer patients and associated healthcare works to study transmission dynamics.
