New insights on Covid-19 at Edinburgh Coronavirus workshop

The second Edinburgh Coronavirus workshop – Covid-19: three-months on – was held on 23 June 2020, to discuss work that is contributing to our understanding and response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Edinburgh Infectious Diseases was very pleased to host this second event focussing on Covid-19 research from across the University of Edinburgh. 

It was a follow up to the first event held in March this year, just as the UK went into lockdown, and explored perspectives from clinical, social and basic research gained over the intervening three months. 

The event brought together a global audience of over 260 to hear seven excellent talks and contribute to wide-ranging and insightful discussion.

All the talks are now available to listen again; videos are approximately 20-25 min in length.
