LHP brings together the multidisciplinary wealth of expertise in anti-infective research and is well-positioned to adopt a one health approach for the region.
The Infection Programme Team is supporting academic and NHS colleagues in providing monthly updates on work at pace and scale across the system in response to the COVID 19 pandemic, to align research strategy and performance.
A series of webinars is planned to report on the work of the STrategic One Liverpool Partnership for COVID (STOP COVID), which is supported by UoL/ LSTM Centre of Excellence in Infectious Diseases Research (CEIDR), Clinical Research Network North West Coast and the NIHR Health Protection Unit. Those participating in the first webinar heard how LHP members have invested over £1.1M into COVID19 research, recruited over 2,000 patients to associated studies and driven downtime to set up research to under a week. It was also reported that the STOP COVID initiative has enabled volunteers to support COVID19 research, developed a research platform to support projects specifically aimed at our healthcare staff and has supported new research ideas being developed across the partnership.
