Keeping tabs on SARS-CoV-2

In the ENDVOC project we will study
variants of concern across the world

Supporting the global response to COVID-19 and future pandemics

We will evaluate the impact of different variants in
diagnostics, treatment, and public health strategies

By investigating the circulation and impact of current and emerging
variants of concern (VOC), we aim to evaluate and
support effective pandemic responses. To do so, we will use data from
well-established patient and population cohorts across the world.

” Detecting emerging Covid-19 variants of concern, and understanding their
implications on diagnostics, vaccination strategies and treatment options
is key to guiding our response to the virus”
Ibrahim Abubakar, principal researcher of the project based at UCL
