The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) have released a list of frequently asked questions about COVID-19 research taking place in the UK.
So far, over 30,000 participants are taking part in a range of NIHR supported COVID-19 research studies across the UK. There are 21 new research studies into the novel coronavirus that have been funded by the NIHR and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). The new research projects include the first drug trial in primary care, studies on new vaccines and therapies, and research into disease transmission, behavioural interventions and policy approaches to COVID-19. This round of projects has received a total £14.1 million from the NIHR and UKRI as part of their rapid research response to COVID-19.
