Launch of £4m data project to transform Covid-19 research image

A multi-million pound research project will give scientists better access to data to help develop potential therapies and treatment for COVID-19.

The project - CO-CONNECT - will connect COVID-19 data derived from patient blood samples. This will provide information on how immunity may help prevent the spread of the virus and how long immunity lasts.

The project brings together experts from the Universities of Nottingham, Dundee and Edinburgh, along with Public Health England.

Philip Quinlan, head of digital research service at the University of Nottingham, and associate director in HDR UK, said: 'We are really excited to be bringing together the best of the UK’s data assets into an accessible format. It will ensure leading researchers have access to the latest data and at the scale required to give definitive answers to some of the most significant questions that require an answer.'
