Quantitative Isotype Profiling And Dynamics Of SARS-CoV-2 Infections: Next-Generation Serology

Principal Investigator: 

We are making a blood test that will tell us a lot of information about the body’s response to the COVID-19, including whether a person is likely to get really sick or will easily fight off the virus. The blood test is will be easy to take, using only a drop of blood from the tip of the finger. The test is run using cutting-edge technology so that we can test a lot of people, at low cost, while getting the right results. The test will help prevent people from getting severely sick from COVID-19 by letting doctors know BEFORE things get worse that their patient may need additional care to help fight off the virus. For our citizens most at risk, like the elderly and those with other medical conditions, the results can be used to direct resources and support where they are needed most.
