Project description

The world is under the spell of SARS-CoV2. More insight is urgently needed into how this new virus disrupts the human immune system and can cause serious illness. In this project we will work with a consortium of clinicians, virologists, immunologists, single-cell experts and bioinformatics scientists
to gain a better understanding of the immunopathology of SARS-CoV2.
