We are working to understand diseases, to find out how they operate and to create better treatments for patients. Get to know about our groups and their lines of research.

As age increases in men, the concentration of the hormone in the blood drops and this increases the likelihood of severe progression of the infection in COVID-19 patients
The work used a machine learning system to show that certain immunological patterns are related to a more severe progression of the disease and more mortality.
The publication summarises the main results showing that at least 20% of cases of severe pneumonia after SARS-CoV-2 infection are explained by genetic and immunological anomalies.
