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 ...
Host genetics of COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic is a global crisis creating severe disruptions across the economy and health system. Known risk factors for severe forms of COVID-19 disease include age, male sex, and comorbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular diseases. Irrespective of these risk factors, some succumbing to the disease are previously healthy and relatively young. Hence, it has been hypothesized that the genetic background of the individuals might play a role in this differential immune response. In order to understand the role of genetics in COVID-19 immune response, the internat...
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 ...
