University experts’ Covid-related research

Swansea University researchers are helping to develop wider understanding of Covid-19 in addition to their important focus on vaccines.

The University’s Medical School is home to the Centre for Cytochrome P450 Biodiversity and the multi-million pound inter-disciplinary BEACON research centre. Both are at the forefront of using knowledge of bacteria and fungi to tackle a variety of health challenges while integrating approaches into green research goals.

Professor Steven Kelly said: “We have been reviewing our research in light of the pandemic. Specialising in microbial studies, we were very pleased to see that many of our papers feed into the Covid-19-related research and other health areas.

“We are fortunate to be able to benefit from working with external academic and industrial partners to advance our research. We hope that our research will help improve processes for the future.”
