In the current worldwide COVID-19 pandemic situation, fast developments not only in vaccines are needed, but also in analytical techniques to detect the infection, predict outcomes during hospitalization and more and more important towards Long COVID.
An international research network initiated by Bruker and under the guidance of the Australian National Phenome Center (ANPC) run by Prof. Jeremy Nicholson has been set up in April 2020. It is a worldwide international COVID Research Network consisting of several institutions which collaborate, using completely standardized NMR* procedures producing spectral data, exchangeable and integratable across the Network.
We interviewed them to find out about this new approach in science and get to know the latest findings in this interesting approach to tackle this topic together to find faster solutions than usual by sharing research findings.
