An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge

In 2022, the Cambridge Festival is taking place between 31st March and 10th April.

They have already launched their event programme, which is available online. There are activities around four themes: discovery, environment, health, and society, in different formats – make sure to check it, there are activities for all!

This year, Cambridge Infectious Diseases joined COVID-19 Genomics UK (COG-UK) to contribute with an online talk:
'A conversation with the SARS-CoV-2 variant hunters', by Prof Sharon Peacock and Dr Katerina Galai. 



Professor Peacock and Dr Galai will discuss genomic sequencing of SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19 transmission, and the effectiveness of vaccines. They will also talk about the rapid formation of COG-UK in March 2020, how it has evolved since then, and answer questions from the audience.

The talk is scheduled for Tuesday 5 April, from 18:30 to 19:30. You can register and find more information here.
