COVID symptom tracker

By using this app you're contributing to advance vital research on COVID-19. The app will be used to study the symptoms of the virus and track how it spreads.

This research is led by Dr Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London and director of TwinsUK a scientific study of 15,000 identical and non-identical twins, which has been running for nearly three decades.

The COVID Symptom Tracker was designed by doctors and scientists at King's College London, Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals working in partnership with ZOE Global Ltd – a health science company.

Clinical trials are an essential part of translational research. Patients who are part of a clinical trial are often invited to be on a panel or attend focus groups where they can talk about their treatment experience, review documents such as patient leaflets or comment on research findings. The principle investigators can draw upon this to make their research more relevant to their patients.

Principle Investigators who are active in PPI/E include:

 PPI DisplayIf you are a PI and would like to know more about the benefits of PPI/E and how you can be involved then please email Dr. Amanda Stranks (PPI/E and Communications Strategy Lead, NIHR Cambridge BRC): 

 

Immunology at the Cambridge Science Festival

The Science Festival provides the public with opportunities to explore and discuss issues of scientific interest and concern and to raise aspirations by encouraging young people to consider a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM).

The Cambridge Immunology Network takes part each year in the Cambridge Science Festival.  We have a very popular discussion panel on an immunology related topic and also hands-on activities for children.  We have a group of very enthusiastic scientists who volunteer to organise these events.
