An extraordinary amount of fascinating COVID-19 related research is taking place across our BRC and the King’s College London Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine. To highlight this work, the Faculty and BRC are collaborating to present a weekly 30-minute virtual session where academics and researchers will present their work.
Adrian Clive Hayday FMedSci FRS is the Kay Glendinning professor and Chair in the Department of Immunobiology at King’s College London and group leader at the Francis Crick Institute in the UK.
His talk ‘A COVID-19 immune signature: insights to aid understanding and management of severe disease’ will look at research on how COVID-19 affects the immune system and efforts to predict which patients will become seriously ill with the disease.
We will be extending this series to also include other BRC research initiatives beyond those related to the Covid-19 to present the scale and breadth of activity taking place at both KCL and the BRC. Anyone interested in contributing to this series, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
