This research area aims at setting up high-throughput virus testing capability at SciLifeLab from environmental samples, and start pilot projects towards systematic longitudinal monitoring of COVID-19 cycles from environmental samples (e.g. wastewater). Furthermore, aim at comparing data with human sampling and contributing towards understanding epidemics.
This area consists of 4 individual projects, funded a total of 3 MSEK. Led by researchers at Uppsala University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University and SLU.
Coordinator: Alice Sollazzo, Uppsala University
Scientific lead: Anna J. Székely, Uppsala University
