This research area aims at developing and coordinating biobanking of COVID-19 samples (e.g. multiple sample types and longitudinal follow-up) for current and future research efforts, and sharing best practices. The work is carried out in collaboration with Biobank Sweden.
The area consists of 8 individual projects, funded a total of 7,7 MSEK. Led by researchers at Uppsala University, Karolinska Institutet, Umeå University, University of Gothenburg, Lund University and Örebro University.
Coordinator: Jeannette Lundblad Magnusson, Karolinska University Hospital
Scientific lead: Mia Phillipson, Uppsala University
