UCD COVID-19 Research Seminar Series

UCD COVID-19 Research Seminar Series

Across UCD and in our university hospitals, researchers are rising to the challenge of the Covid19 pandemic. They are providing critical supports that have a real and tangible impact on patients’ lives. They are expanding Ireland’s testing capacity, developing new supply chains, manufacturing reagents, developing national contact tracing capability, and investigating new ways to tackle the disease.

Our researchers are working to better understand the impact on the health of our children during this pandemic, the impact on individuals with intellectual and disabilities and their caregivers, they are exploring new methods for screening antiviral compounds, coordinating primary care networks, manufacturing PPE, producing critical reagents for testing, modelling populations behaviours, developing new medical devices to mitigate the risk of disease spread, investigating the host response to the disease, developing innovative remote monitoring technologies, and developing novel national disease surveillance methods.

This seminar series, launched by UCD Research will showcase on-going Covid-19 related research at UCD to help facilitate greater interdisciplinary collaboration within UCD and with external partners.
