The University of Cambridge is to take a leading role in a major national effort to help understand and control the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) announced today by the Government and the UK’s Chief Scientific Adviser.
The race is on to find a vaccine against the new COVID-19 coronavirus. Professor Jonathan Heeney explains why a cautious approach is needed and how his team is using new technology developed for influenza and Ebola viruses to target the new infection.
Thanks to funding from an anonymous donation, Lizzie Bowes (Newnham 2016) became the second Schools Liaison Officer for Trinity College earlier this academic year. Having been the first student from her state school to study at Cambridge, she is passionate about encouraging talented students who are under-represented at the University to attend open days and residential courses.
