COVID-19 Research and News from the College of Medical and Dental Sciences

From virology to immunology our researchers are contributing to the global effort to counter the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects. Our staff and students are also supporting the NHS by volunteering their time to fight the outbreak. And through Birmingham Health Partners across the wider West Midlands region, we are mobilised on several fronts to stop the virus and save lives.
