Watch Again - Professor Nicole Soranzo - Sanger Seminar and Q&A session

The genetic basis of common traits and diseases
Professor Nicole Soranzo is a group leader at the Sanger Institute, seeking to unravel the spectrum of human genetic variation associated with cardiometabolic diseases, and its interaction with non-genetic and environmental cues.

COVID-19 research at the Sanger Institute

We are committed to tracking, understanding and combatting COVID-19. Our staff sequence thousands of virus genomes and use the data to trace transmission, inform public health measures and monitor for new variants of the virus. We also work to understand how the virus interacts with our cells, and to develop new diagnostics

Why do #COVID19 patients have such diverse symptoms, ranging from asymptomatic to severe?

New research from @emblebi, @sangerinstitute and collaborators has discovered differing immune responses as one factor.

Congratulations 🎉 to @DMalawsky for receiving both the @Gates_Cambridge and Churchill scholarships!

He's studying the impact that genetic variation has on health in understudied populations 🔬

Differences found in immune responses of asymptomatic #COVID19 patients compared to those with severe symptoms could explain lung inflammation and blood clotting.
