Edinburgh Coronavirus workshop – three-months on

Edinburgh Infectious Diseases is very pleased to be hosting a second workshop focussing on Covid-19 research from across the University of Edinburgh.

This is a follow up to the event held back in March this year, just as the UK went into lockdown, and will explore perspectives from clinical, social and basic research gained over the past three months.

We very much hope that you will be able to join us for what will be a very stimulating afternoon.
