What we did when the virus hit

Millions of people around the world have had COVID-19 and our thoughts are with all those who have lost a family member, friend or colleague. Over the last year, your University has been working round the clock to help those affected by COVID-19, tackling everything from the impact on cancer patients to air pollution.

Below is a snapshot of the work taking place across campus and beyond.

Watch Professors Nick Loman, Alan McNally, and KK Cheng discuss how Birmingham is playing an instrumental role in tracking the virus in our webinar Mapping the Virus (1 hour 16 minutes), hosted by Alice Roberts, Professor of Public Engagement in Science at the University.
