‘Immunity passport’ to COVID-19

Understanding the drivers of protective immunity against COVID-19 is critical to securing long-term community health. This project will undertake in-depth studies of antibodies, B-cells and T-Cells directed at SARS-CoV-2 to understand the drivers behind lasting protection to COVID-19. The research team have obtained a sample set from over 75 patients recovered from COVID-19 and are closely following these dedicated people over time to define the characteristics and durability of their immune responses. This will allow researchers to explore the feasibility of an ‘immunity passport’ following infection and provide detailed immunological profiles of COVID-19 immunity.
