Inflammation in COVID-19: Exploration of Critical Aspects of Pathogenesis (ICECAP)

ICECAP was established as a rapid response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We collect and analyse tissue samples to understand COVID-19 and other fatal diseases, contributing to finding tests and treatments for these conditions.


By assembling a team of expert clinicians and scientists we aim to understand the key features of COVID-19. Ultimately this information will help to inform the development of better tests and therapeutic interventions for these conditions.
