UNDERSTANDING THE IMMUNITY OF RECOVERED COVID-19 PATIENTS

Two vital research programmes taking place at the University of Oxford may hold the key to understanding the immunity of recovered Covid-19 patients. The data will also be used by Professor Sarah Walker at the University of Oxford who is working with the Office for National Statistics on the COVID-19 Infection Survey.

Prof Sarah Walker receives OBE

Prof Walker, Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology at the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Medicine, was recognised for services to academia and the COVID-19 response and will receive an OBE.

Evaluation of LamPORE rapid tests for Covid-19 show high levels of diagnostic sensitivity

Scientists from the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Medicine have today published their evaluation of LamPORE, a novel diagnostic platform for detecting SARS-CoV-2 RNA. It combines loop-mediated isothermal amplification with nanopore sequencing. This technology has the potential to analyse thousands of samples per day on a single instrument.
