Contributing to the fight against COVID-19

Our research, enterprise support, and testing and vaccination efforts have taken on the challenges faced across the globe by the spread of COVID-19. From looking at the effectiveness of different personal protective equipment (PPE) and investigating the connection between the chemical senses and COVID-19, to developing a social distancing game for children and conducting research into attitudes towards fitness, body image and physical activity at home.
