The immune system reaction to COVID-19

Project summary

In this project it is investigated how the inflammation and immune dysfunction that is found during COVID-19 disease can affect disease severity and therapy with plasma from recovered patients. A deep analysis of the immune system will be performed to shed light onto what makes plasma therapy work or fail.


Therapeutic interventions, that can either prevent or shorten more severe COVID-19 disease, are expected to have beneficial long-term health consequences and this reduces future costs of care for these patients.
