VECMA and CompBioMed join forces to predict the impact of COVID

SARS-CoV2 has rapidly spread worldwide since December 2019, and early modelling work of this pandemic has assisted in identifying effective government interventions. The UK government relied in part on the CovidSim model developed by Professor Neil Ferguson’s team at the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis at Imperial College London, to model various non-pharmaceutical…

Crowdfunding to support the Covid-19 research project – an interactive COVID-19 risk assessment map

We are pleased to announce one of our core partners, Brunel University, has launched this project, in connection with VECMA, to maximise the accessibility of research results in the fight against COVID-19.   Funds raised will be used to create an interactive COVID-19 risk assessment map which will map the spread risk in several UK…
