Keeping our community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic

Our research have taken up 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. Below is just a snapshot of the fantastic work going on at the University to help keep our community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

'I am very proud of the excellent range of research activities which address important aspects associated with the COVID-19 pandemic undertaken by the University. Our research staff have and continue to respond with great vigour using their expert knowledge and boundless enthusiasm to deliver innovative solutions to keep people safe and help support our diverse communities through this challenging period.'
