A team of South Australian scientists is joining forces in the fight against COVID-19 to greater inform the local, national and global response efforts, including the creation of a vaccine.

The group of SA virologists, immunologists and clinicians has been equipped with $150,000 in funding from The Hospital Research Foundation and initial $75,000 from the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation to commence their world-first research. 

The findings will help determine if in fact a 'super race' does exist – recovered patients who can go back into the community with immunity – and how long the immunity may last.
