Novel testing strategies for SARS-CoV-2 virus surveillance and determination of immunity

Initiative: Corona Crisis and Beyond – Perspectives for Science, Scholarship and Society (beendet)
Bewilligung: 10.12.2020
Laufzeit: 1 Jahr 6 Monate


To manage the next steps in the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, it is essential to have better tools for virus detection and to determine viral immunity within the population. The aim of the proposed project is to develop novel test methods for virus detection and for measuring (neutralizing) anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. These tools may help us to detect the virus not only in individuals, but also in defined environments, and to determine who is immune to the infection.
