COVID-19 DIAGNOSTIC PROGRAM POWERED BY AI

The aim of the project is to create a prototype of an integrated tele-medical system supporting comprehensive clinical decisions in the field of novel COVID-19. The project scope also includes significant research activities focused on utilising a variety of available multidisciplinary clinical and imaging data to enable the proposed system to go beyond supporting detection and diagnosis that is already possible by the existing methods. The problem undertaken in the project is the limitations related to the early diagnosis of the COVID-19, collection of epidemiological and statistical data ...

TraAct-DD - Track and Act with Data Donation #getout #stayout

Luxembourg is entering a gradual deconfinement phase. For this to be successful, it is critical that the country protect vulnerable people and build the trust of the population in going back to work, to school safely. It is also vital to identify asymptomatic COVID-positive patients and to wisely direct the (scarce) tests. If Luxembourg can manage this, epidemiological models indicate that a gradual release of the population may stem the pandemic and enable return to normal (#getout, #stayout). The ongoing debate at the government level indicates hesitation between blue-tooth tracing, ma...

Covid-19 related LOckdown: Shift in Exposures to neighbourhood environments and changes in Physic...

A lockdown state implies radical changes in our lifestyle, especially physical activity (PA), while PA plays a central role in maintaining an adequate health status, counteracting the negative consequences of numerous diseases. We aim to investigate the impact of lockdown (and quarantine) on PA patterns based on retrospective data. We will analyse the intra-individual changes in PA patterns of participants stratified in two specific subgroups of interest, namely positive cases and their household members as a result of the lockdown/quarantine measures in place, with respect to the partici...

A unified web-based platform for viral phylogeny, proteomics and genomics research in real-time

We propose the development of an integrated web-based data exploration tool for genomics, proteomics, phylogeny, evolutionary and geographical data on SARS-CoV-2 samples from Luxembourg supporting researchers and physicians to gauge the potential impact of viral evolution on virulence and transmission dynamics but also the efficacy of molecular detection methods. Integrating different data sources and visualisation modes through a graphical web-interface will offer a unique perspective on the pathogen and serve as tools to assess potential imminent risks.

DICO-Lux: DIgital Covid-19 Observatory In LUXembourg: An Open Tool For SARS-COV-2 Crisis Manageme...

Monitoring online activities for public health purposes has been investigated since the first days of the digital epidemiology field early 2010s, with the objective of capturing health-related trends and model disease outbreaks. Most famous examples of internet surveillance were developed for the flu, influenza AH1N1, the Zika virus or Ebola. We now have the opportunity to leverage both the digital data available online and the appropriate Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Text Mining methods to fight the Covid-19 pandemic. The main objective of the DICO-LUX project is to rapidly d...

Innovative end-to-end solution for respiratory diseases detection and genotyping

Our innovative end-to-end solution for respiratory diseases detection and genotyping is composed of 3 main compoenets as follows: First, we want, through a multiplex qPCR assay, to target and differentiate in priority COVID-19, SARS, H5N1, H1N1 (devastating diseases) from seasonal flu (under control). Second, we propose to develop an NGS and SANGER assay for the following Intended uses: Respiratory diseases Genotyping, Screening, Monitoring, Quasispecies identification, Epidemiological studies. Third, we target to establish a large COVID-19 and SARS worldwide database , compare patient ...

Controling the symptoms

Since the information about the COVID-19 pandemic isn't that much available. The easiest and fastest way to mitigate the virus is by controlling the symptoms.
