Dozens of Imperial scientists are racing to try to create a vaccine to put a stop to the spread of the coronavirus. They hope to get a vaccine ready for clinical trial in the summer. They recently shared photos of their work so far.
Modeling the spread of the coronavirus
Researchers from Imperial use modeling to analyze how the coronavirus will spread based on possible different public health measures. This analysis plays a big part in influencing the policies of the UK government.
