Markers that predict risks for developing chronic respiratory disease after COVID-19

Ex-COVID-19 patients will undergo medical tests and biological samples will be analysed to increase the understanding of who is at risk for chronic disease. The influence of environmental factors and of a lifestyle intervention will be analysed, and lab research will contribute to better mechanistic insights providing leads for interventions.

Trusted World of Corona

The goal of this trusted guide to the world of COVID-19 is to help clinicians, the scientific community, policy makers and politicians and the public at large to get near real time accurate, expert-annotated and specific information in a modern, user friendly and easily accessible format. The benefits will include better use of treatments, faster development of vaccines and a clearer view on factors that may negatively affect the outcomes of a COVID-19 infection and other future virus outbreaks.


There is a high demand for SARS-CoV-2 antiviral therapies that may limit COVID-19 severity in susceptible individuals. In this project, epithelial models from nasal brushing obtained from SARS-CoV-2 infected individuals will be developed. These models may allow simulation of viral infections in a dish and selection of candidate antiviral drugs.
