Researchers from the University of Manchester and beyond, and supported by the Thomas Ashton Institute, worked on the PROTECT COVID-19 National Core Study on transmission and environment, a UK-wide research programme improving our understanding of how SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) is transmitted from person to person, and how this varies in different settings and environments

Led by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE)’s Chief Scientific Adviser, and TAI co-director, Professor Andrew Curran, this critical work was delivered by more than 70 researchers from 16 institutions across the UK. The PROTECT study began in October 2020, as part of the COVID-19 National Core Studies programme spearheaded by UK Government Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance.

This nomination is in recognition of this important work, and the team are excited to hear the results which are announced 21st June at a special event showcasing over 500 nominations and what makes our colleagues brilliant.
